EDITORIAL 


This Spring Issue of the Alabama Historical Quarterly carries the 
story of what will probably be the last reunion of the Confederate 
Veterans held in Montgomery, September 27th and 28th, 1944. 
The story of that meeting is presented as the leading article in the 
magazine owing to its great historical significance. The address 
of the Hon. Walter B. Jones, Presiding Judge of the Fifteenth 
Judicial Circuit of Alabama is presented in full. Another item is 
the address of Dr. Marshall Wingfield on the subject of the great 
Robert E. Lee delivered on the General’s birthday of this year in 
St. Louis, Mo. Dr. Wingfield was re-elected Commander-in-Chief 
of the Sons of Confederate V eterans during the Montgomery con- 
vention of the Sons of Veterans and agreed for the Quarterly to 
reproduce his St. Louis speech which appears in this issue in the 
group of Confederate items. 

An historical sketch on “Origin of Slavery in America” by 
Miss Mattie F. Allison, of Huntsville, located in the files of the 
Virginia Clay-Clopton Chapter, U.D.C., is also printed for the 
first time. Following that article is one giving an account of the 
monument erected by the Daughters of the Confederacy to the 
memory of Heyward Shepherd, a Freedman faithful to his duties 
at Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia. The address of Mrs. L. M. 
Bashinsky who was at the time President General U.D.C., on the 
occasion of the dedication of the “faithful slave memorial” is re- 
produced in full. 

Among the young heroes of the Confederacy none gave his 
life to his country in a more heroic manner than did Sam Davis, 
of Tennessee, who was hanged as a spy in 1863. He was offered 
his life if he would reveal the name of a Federal soldier who had 
given him the information he was carrying to the Confederates at 
the time of his arrest. Young Davis replied even at the moment 
when he was already standing upon the gallows : “I know the 
danger of my situation and am willing to take the consequences. 
I am ready.” Two monuments have been erected to his memory 
in his native State, one at Pulaski and the other in Nashville. 
On the occasion of the unveiling of the Pulaski monument John 
Trotwood Moore read his poem written especially for the occasion, 
“Sam Davis” which appears in this magazine. 


The late Judge Oliver D. Street, of Huntersville, was a stu- 
dent of Southren history and wrote a number of articles on the 
subject. One of these “ ‘Houston County’ in the Great Bend of 
the Tennessee” was written by Judge Street for the Tennessee 
Valley Historical Society and presented to the Alabama Historical Quar- 
terly by Judge Street himself before his death. It is printed here for 
the first time. 


“Changing Alabama” by Mary S. Butler is an interesting 
analysis of the subject and was awarded the first prize for the 
best current historical article by the Federation of Women’s Clubs 
at their last convention. 


Following its custom the Quarterly carries an article of cur- 
rent history in this issue. In this case the item is the presentation 
of a letter from Gessner T. McCorvey, Chairman of the State Dem- 
ocratic Executive Committee relating to the Primary and Election 
laws and the procedure of the Democratic Party in relation thereto. 

In the World War Memorial Building there is a room de- 
voted entirely to mementoes of Alabama’s French history. The 
Vine and Olive Colony founded Demopolis in 1818 and a number 
of relics of that Napoleonic group of French people who fled from 
their native country to America for safety have been given to the 
Department of Archives and History and are to be found in the 
French Room in the World War Memorial Building. The most 
recent acquisition to the collection is a French gun, the history of 
which is given by Mrs. Bessie Patterson Wilburn who placed the 
gun in the Department for preservation. 

For a number of issues the Quarterly has been printing with 
pictures the history of certain old churches in the State. The 
article in this issue gives the history of Rock Spring Baptist 
Church in Chambers County, written by Miss Anne Elizabeth 
Newman. 

One of Alabama’s most interesting pioneer characters was 
Jeremiah Austill. In the manuscripts collection of the Depart- 
ment of Archives and History is to be found Jeremiah Austin’s 
autobiography covering the early years of his life in this State. 
This article is produced here for the first time and also his wife’s 
account of certain adventures in our Indian warfare period. 


The Quarterly is very grateful to the poets of the State who 
have contributed some of their work for each issue of the maga- 
zine. The Book Reviews are by Dr. Emily Calcott, of State 
Teachers College, Troy, and by Mrs. Mary Heath Lee, of the 
Tuesday Study Club of Fairhope. The two book reviews by Mrs. 
Lee were entered for the Haleyville Study Club prize for a re- 
view of a book by an Alabama author and were awarded prizes 
in the successive years 1943 and 1944. 

There is a steadily growing interest in family history. The 
Quarterly presents as its concluding article inquiries about certain 
families with the request that any one having the information 
wanted write directly to the persons whose names and addresses 
are given in the inquiries.

LAST CONFEDERATE REUNION 


What will probably prove to be the last General Confederate 
Reunion was held in Montgomery through the two days of Sep- 
tember 27th and 28th. The attendance was small owing to the 
great age of the Veterans and the long distance some of them had 
to travel to reach Montgomery. In fact there were only eight 
men present. Those who were determined to hold one more re- 
union insisted upon the meeting being held in Montgomery where 
they were given a warm welcome by the patriotic people of the 
Cradle of the Confederacy. Meeting with the Confederate Vet- 
erans were the National organizations of the Sons of Confederate 
Veterans, the Order of the Stars and Bars and the Confederated 
Southern Memorial Association. Mrs. Lennard Thomas, of Mont- 
gomery, was in charge of the general program, assisted by local 
representatives of the other organizations. 

Commander-in-Chief of the Confederate Veterans, Homer L. 
Atkinson, of Petersburg, Va., was unable to attend on account of 
illness. The first Veteran to arrive was Brigadier-General W. M. 
Buck, of Muscogee, Oklahoma, who has already reached the age 
of 93 but is remarkably active and came from Muscogee to Mont- 
gomery unescorted. The Georgia delegation was sent through the 
courtesy of Governor Ellis Arnall in a beautiful car escorted by 
the Georgia State Highway Patrol in charge of Corp. Paul Smith. 
In the delegation were Col. W. H. Culpepper, 96 years of age and 
Gen. W. L. Dowling, 97. Other Veterans present were: Gen. J. W. 
Moore, of Selma, 93 years of age, who was elected at the close of 
the Reunion to be Commander-in-Chief of the Veterans; J. D. 
Ford, Marshall, Texas, 95 years of age; W. W. Alexander, Rock 
Hill, S. C., 98; Gen. William Banks, Houston, Texas, 98; J. A. 
Davidson, Troy, 100 years of age. All Veterans except Gen. Buch 
were accompanied by attendants. 

Sons of Confederate Veterans Participate 

The Sons of Confederate Veterans had a good representation, 
including their Commander-in-Chief, Dr. Marshall Wingfield, of 
Memphis, Tenn. ; Hon. Walter L. Hopkins, Adjutant-in-Chief, 
Richmond, Va. ; Hon. W. Scott Hancock, Adjutant General and 
Chief of Staff, St. Louis, Mo.; Hon. John R. T. Rives, Cedar Rap-

Dr. Marshall Winfield, a Congregational minister of Memphis, Tenn., a na- 
tive of Virginia, was elected Commander-in-Chief of the Sons of Confederate Vet- 
erans. 

James W. Moore, Selma, Ala., 92 years of age, was elected Commander-in- 
Chief of the Confederate Veterans at the General Convention held in Montgomery,

vention a great success from every point of view. The Exchange

Hotel, successor of the historic old hotel of that name, was head- 
quarters for the Veterans and Sons. At the opening of the Vet- 
eran's meeting a prayer was offered by Dr. Wingfield. The old 
Veterans and the Sons and Daughters sang “Rock of Ages", which 
was Jefferson Davis' favorite hymn. Other music was rendered 
and appropriate addresses were made. Following the preliminary 
exercises a memorial service for Veterans who had died since the 
last reunion was held, conducted by Mrs. Belle Allen Ross, of 
Montgomery, a Vice-President General of the Confederated South- 
ern Memorial Association. Mrs. Lennard Thomas, vocalist and 
Mrs. John Todd, piano accompanist, rendered the music for this 
as for other parts of the program during the reunion. Mrs. Rus- 
sell Hippe, of Montgomery, carrying in her arms a large bouquet 
of red roses, read the lines of Maud Lindsay’s poem “My Land is a 
Red Land and the Red Land Breeds the Rose", accompanied by 
the piano. At the afternoon session Judge Leon McCord of the 
Federal Circuit Court, made a very appealing address and Mrs. 
Hippe presented the roses to the oldest Veteran, the centenarian 
J. A. Davidson, of Troy. The social feature of the first day’s pro- 
gram included a reception at the home of Judge Walter B. Jones 
of the Fifteenth Judicial Circuit Court, of Montgomery. The 
Jones home, occupied for so many years by the late Governor 
Thomas G. Jones and family, is now owned by Judge Walter B. 
Jones and is the center of much hospitality. 

Veterans Stand on Gold Star 

The second day of the Reunion was filled with events planned 
to gratify the old men who had worn the gray and had journeyed 
back to Montgomery for what was referred to as their last Reun- 
ion. The morning of the 28th was bright and warm and the Vet- 
erans were carried from their hotel in a city bus on a tour of in- 
spection of both Gunter and Maxwell air fields where they saw 
young soldiers in khaki being trained as fliers. At each one of 
these military establishments the Commander greeted the Vet- 
erans with warm hand clasps. At Maxwell Field General W. S. 
Gravely showed the Veterans all the wonders of preparation for 
modern warfare. At Gunter Field Colonel Raymon L. Winn also 
gave a warm welcome to the old men in their gray uniforms. 

The tour ended at the Capitol where the Veterans were receiv- 
ed on the Capitol grounds by a detachment of officers of the Wo- 


10 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


man’s Army Corps. The Maxwell Field band seated on the Cap- 
itol grounds near the imposing statue of Jefferson Davis erected 
by the United Daughters of the Confederacy, played Southern 
airs, beginning with "Dixie”, much to the delight of the old men. 
The front of the Capitol was decorated with a large Confederate 
flag suspended from the balcony above the portico, flanked on 
either side by a United States flag and the flag of Alabama, the 
latter a red St. Andrew’s cross on a white field, reminiscent of the 
battleflag of the Confederacy. Seats were provided on the portico 
of the Capitol for the Veterans and chairs facing the Capitol were 
occupied by the audience. Hon. T. B. Hill, of Montgomery, made 
the introductory remarks and presented the speaker of the occa- 
sion, Judge Walter B. Jones, who delivered an address that touch- 
ed all hearts and will be preserved in many libraries as it is repro- 
duced in this issue of the Quarterly for that purpose. Each Vet- 
eran in turn stood upon the spot where Jefferson Davis stood 
when he took his oath of office as President of the Confederate 
States of America. The spot long ago was marked by the Ladies 
Southern Memorial Association, of Montgomery. 

The Bible on which Jefferson Davis took his oath of office 
and upon which all Governors of Alabama since 1853 have been 
sworn into office, kept securely in its glass cabinet in the World 
War Memorial Building, was placed near the star for the occasion. 
The Great Seal of the Confederate States of America was also in 
the case. 

In the group of seven Veterans that posed for a photograph 
was one Negro man slave 90 years of age who served in the war 
as a body guard to his master. This man. Dr. R. A. Gwynne, lives 
in Birmingham where he is a well known character. 

A Banquet is Held 

In the evening a banquet for the Veterans, Sons of Veterans 
and representatives of the other patriotic organizations of the 
Confederacy, was given at the Whitley Hotel with an audience 
of four score men and women. The decorations were unique and 
appropriately centered with a large stage coach around which were 
placed small Confederate soldiers bidding their sweethearts good- 
bye. Vases of flowers were decorated with figures of old fashioned 
girls wearing ante-bellum hoop skirts as were the decorations of

11 


the place cards. The toastmaster of the banquet was John R. T. 
Rives. The principal speaker was Hon. Chauncey Sparks, Gov- 
ernor of Alabama. Others included Mrs. Adelaide Van Diver, 
Prattville, Division President of the U.D.C. ; Mrs. Bibb Graves, 
former U. S. Senator; Mrs. L. M. Bashinsky, former President- 
General of U.D.C., Dr. Wingfield, Commander-in-Chief of the Sons 
of Confederate Veterans and others. During the evening the Con- 
federate Veterans were introduced and several of them made ap- 
propriate talks. Mrs. Thomas wore a Scarlett O’Hara dress and 
received vociferous applause when she sang “Shortenin’ Bread”. 

Golden Anniversary Luncheon 

Following the exercises at the Capitol the whole company re- 
paired to the Civic Room of the Jefferson Davis Hotel where the 
three Montgomery Chapters of the United Daughters of the Con- 
federacy gave a luncheon. Mrs. Albert Pickett, of Montgomery, 
was in charge. Mrs. Jesse Roberts, of Montgomery, Past Division 
President of the U.D.C. was Toastmistress. The long tables were 
soon occupied and additional tables were hastily set up to take 
care of the many guests who arrived belatedly. The particular 
occasion was not only to honor the Veterans and Sons of Veterans 
but to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the 
United Daughters of the Confederacy. A large birthday cake com- 
memorating that momentous event was decorated with fifty golden 
candles. The cake was cut by Mrs. Roberts and served to the en- 
tire company. Group singing included “Dixie”, “Bonnie Blue 
Flag”, and “Auld Lang Syne.” The Veterans left Montgomery 
feeling very happy and grateful for the hospitalities shown to them 
and for the love expressed for them by every one.

THE CONFEDERATE VETERAN 

Address of Hon. Walter B. Jones, Presiding Judge, Fifteenth Judicial 
Circuit of Alabama, before the Final Reunion of the United Confederate 
Veterans, Montgomery, Alabama, State Capitol, September 28, 1944. 


Venerable Veterans of the Southern Confederacy, Sons and 
Daughters of the Confederacy, and my Fellow Americans: 

You come this morning, Veterans, to a Southern city forever 
associated with the Confederate States of America. It was here in 
old Montgomery, in this very building, on this very spot, that 
more than eighty years ago was cradled the Southern Confederacy, 
that noble government of which it is said, beautifully and truth- 
fully : 


No nation rose so white and fair, 

None fell, so pure of crime. 

At this hour you come to scenes forever made historic be- 
cause in days now long gone Jefferson Davis and the giants of the 
South walked this very ground and stood on this very portico. 
Well may we remember on this sacred spot God’s admonition to 
Moses in the mountain of Horeb : Put off thy shoes from off thy 
feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground. 

Reverently you come to this hallowed spot to hold a solemn 
service in this your final reunion on earth. The promptings of 
loyal hearts bring you here to Montgomery, to the first capital 
of your beloved Confederacy, for the final scene ; and you stand 
in this morning hour where so many heroes of the Confederacy, 
and of the Nation, have stood in years past. 

You stand today on this consecrated hill, with your faithful 
Sons and devoted Daughters about you, to pay a tribute of love 
and affection to your comrades in arms, and to the leaders of 
your civil government, and to join again in fraternal handclasp 
your few fellow survivors. 

As you stand here on this beautiful eminence, overlooking 
Jefferson Davis’s first seat of government, and in the shadow of 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


13 


the handsome monument here reared to his memory, you commune 
with the warrior Spirits of old, drawing- strength from the mem- 
ory of their glorious deeds and the bravery of their spirits. 

You come in this morning hour with tender and sweet recol- 
lections of the Southern Confederacy, and of the men and women 
who founded it. You recall the nobility and the uprightness of 
that short-lived government. You remember the part that God 
gave you to play in those stirring days of the Sixties when our 
great Nation was divided and the South invaded. You look back 
on the work of your hands and the sacrifices of your lives in those 
times with pride and satisfaction. The gentle winds of Yesterday 
waft to you here today the sweet memories of a departed genera- 
tion, and bring back the greatness and glories of years now long 
buried beneath the sands of Time. 

Why You Fought 

You took your place in the armies of the South obedient to the 
summons of duty and the instincts of self-preservation. You 
marched out to battle, not that you wanted fame, not that you 
coveted reward, not that you wanted place, not that you desired 
rank, and not that you desired to keep an alien race in bondage. 
Ambition did not lure you, nor did the lust for power goad you. 
You took your place in the trenches to battle for your fire-sides, 
your homes and your people. You fought to preserve the union 
of the States under the Constitution. You and your comrades 
suffered all, endured all, gave all, and sacrified all save honor to 
defend those ideals for which your fathers fought, and, dying, 
delegated to your hands. You have been faithful to that trust and 
have done your part to preserve the American system of govern- 
ment on this Continent. 


What We Recall 

So, we are reverently gathered here today to turn again with 
mournful rustling the golden leaves of memory, and as we con- 
template the days of old, we recall the secession of sovereign 
States from the Union because ' their people felt they could no 
longer live in peace and justice within the Union, and elected to 
exercise their reserved power under the Constitution to secede. 
We remember how long and sincerely Southern statesmen labored 


14 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


to preserve the Union of the Fathers. We remember President 
Lincoln’s call for volunteers to carry the war into the South, how 
Pennsylvania’s troops reached Washington the next day, how four 
days later Massachusetts’ regiments poured into the capital of the 
Nation, how New York’s first regiment came the next day, and 
how the sons of the North sprang up to answer the President’s 
call for the invasion of the South. 

The Soldier of the Confederacy 

Then strode upon the stage of history, in all the glory of his 
young manhood, the peer of the world’s greatest soldiers, the Sol- 
dier of the Southern Confederacy. 

Robert E. Lee, true to the faith that was in him, rejected the 
offer of supreme command of the armies of the United tSates and, 
mounting ‘Traveler’, rode out to lead you and your comrades in 
arms. And, “forth from its scabbard, pure and bright”, Lee’s 
sword “flashed in the cause of right.” 

Thomas J. Jackson closed his textbooks at the Virginia Mili- 
tary Institute, buckled his sword on, became Lee’s greatest lieu- 
tenant, and rode into fame and history as “Stonewall” Jackson. 

The lion-hearted Nathan Bedford Forrest, the “wizard of the 
saddle”, sprang to his horse and commanded your comrades in 
many important battles. 

Leonidas K. Polk doffed the robes of an Episcopal bishop to 
wear the uniform of a Confederate major general, commanded a 
corps of the Army of Tennessee and heroically died in action at 
Marietta. 

Albert Sidney Johnston mapped your battle plans at Shiloh 
and gave the last full measure of his devotion to the cause of the 
Confederacy. 

“Bronze-bearded” J. E. B. Stuart and his cavalry rode around 
McClellan’s rear, raided Pope’s communications, brought Lee valu- 
able information, Stuart dying gloriously at Yellow Tavern. 

General George Pickett, at the head of his Virginians, Caro- 
linians, Mississippians, Tennesseeans and Alabamians, marched out 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


IS 


steadily as if on dress parade, stormed the heights at Gettysburg, 
and won immortal glory. 

John Brown Gordon, wounded in battle eight times, held the 
last lines at Petersburg, and at Appomattox made the last charge 
of Lee’s valiant army. 

John Hunt Morgan made memorable cavalry raids for the 
Confederacy, and gave his life for his Southland at Greenville, 
Tennessee. 

John Singleton Mosby and his Partisan Rangers, “the hell-cats 
on horseback”, harassed Grant and Sheridan in the Valley of Vir- 
ginia and made their names synonymous with brave deeds and 
daring escapades. 

John Pelham sprang to the saddle to command Stuart’s Horse 
Artillery, to fire Lee’s guns at Fredericksburg, and to pass into 
history at the height of his fame as the Gallant Pelham. 

Raphael Semmes, commanding the Sumter and the Alabama, 
destroyed federal commerce on every sea and made naval history. 

Longstreet, and Early, and Hood, and Ashby, and countless 
hundreds of gallant Confederates wore the gray with bravery and 
distinction, and on countless bloody battlefields you and your com- 
rades fought with courage and boldness for the Southern Confed- 
eracy. 


The Poets of the South 

In the sweetness of this hour we remember, too, the gentle 
singers of the South, and their verse and song which inspired and 
sustained you in the conflict of battle. 

As the invader sets foot on Southern soil, comes the clarion 
call of Albert Pike’s “Dixie” : 

Southrons, hear your country call you ! 

Up ! lest worse than death befall you ! 

To arms! to arms! to arms! in Dixie! 


16 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


For Dixie's land we'll take our stand. 

To live or die for Dixie! 

And from South Carolina, first to secede, Henry Timrod rouses 
his countrymen with his poem, “Carolina”: 

The despot treads thy sacred sands, 

The pines give shelter to his bands, 

Thy sons stand with idle hands, 

Carolina ! 

From the heart of Maryland comes the stirring poem of James 
Ryder Randall’s, “My Maryland” : 

The despot’s heel is on thy shore, 

Maryland ! 

His torch is at thy temple door, 

Maryland ! 

The Confederacy is organized, its government established. 
Patriotic sons and daughters of the South, sing from Virginia to 
Texas : 


Hurrah! Hurrah! 

For Southern rights, hurrah! 

Hurrah for the Bonnie Blue Flag 
That bears the single star ! 

The months pass wearily by, and the war drags on. The 
poets are soldiers now and they write of the incidents of the 
struggle, day by day. Thaddeus Oliver touches our hearts with 
the tenderness of “All Quiet Along the Potomac Tonight”: 

“All quiet along the Potomac,” they say, 

Except now and then a stray picket 
Is shot as he walks his beat, to and fro 
By a rifleman hid in the thicket. 

John Reuben Thompson’s “Music in Camp” tells in moving 
lines the soldier’s longing for home and family. You remember 
two armies “covered hill and plain” as. the band played. Then a 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


17 


federal band, “with movement light and tricksy”, played “Dixie”. 
And how the Rebels yelled ! “Then the trumpets pealed sonorous,” 
and the band played “Yankee Doodle”! And now how the Yan- 
kees yelled! Now the bugles sing again. No shout rings upon 
the evening air, a holy quiet reigns — “all silent the Yankees stood, 
and silent stood the Rebels” — 

No unresponsive soul had heard 
That plaintive notes appealing 
So deeply “Home, Sweet Home”, had stirred 
The hidden founts of feeling. 

The private soldier dreams in the trenches during the long 
nights, and William Gordon McCabe’s “Dreaming in the Trenches” 
pictures the girl of his dreams 

there in the quaint old room, 

Where the fading twilight starts and falls, 

Alone in the twilight’s tender gloom 

With the shadows that dance on the dim-lit walls. 

Alone, while those faces look silently down 
From their antique frames in a grim repose — 

Slight scholarly Ralph in his Oxford gown 
And stanch Sir Allan, who died for Montrose. 

Marie Ravenel De La Coste, in her moving poem, “Somebody’s 
Darling”, brings to us the death scene of a noble Southern lad in 
an army hospital : 

Into a ward of the white-washed walls 
Where the dead and the dying lay, 

Wounded by bayonets, shells and balls 
Somebody’s darling was borne one day. 

Somebody’s darling, so young and brave, 

Wearing still on his pale sweet face — 

Soon to be hid by the dust of the grave — 

The lingering light of his boyhood’s grace. 

The knightly deeds of the Confederate warrior move Francis 
Ticknor to tell in tender pathos the story of Little Giffen, the son 
of a Tennessee blacksmith: “smitten of grapeshot ana gangrene — 
eighteenth battle and he sixteen”. Then the poet tells how the boy 


18 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


soldier outwitted death, and how the crippled skeleton learned to 
write. Then one day news came that Johnston, his old commander, 
was pressed at the front. And you remember how Little Giffen 
was up and away. ‘Til write if spared — there was news of the 
fight, But none of Giffen! He did not write.” And then you recall 
the noble thought of the poet : 

I sometimes fancy that were I king 

Of the princely knights of the Golden Ring, 

With the song of the minstrel in mine ear 
And the tender legend that trembles here, 

I'd give the best on his bended knee, 

The whitest soul of my chivalry, 

For little Giffen of Tennessee. 

The war continues on. The sons of the South on hundreds 
of battlefields prove that greater love and lay down their lives for 
their country and their friends at home. A Southern hero dies on 
the field of battle and the poet sings, as John Reuben Thompson 
did, in his elegy in memory of General Turner Ashby, who fell at 
Harrisonburg as he moved on foot toward the enemy, crying : 
“Forward, my brave men.” 

To the brave all homage render, 

Weep, ye skies of June! 

With a radiance pure and tender, 

Shine, oh saddened moon ! 

“Dead upon the field of glory”, 

Hero fit for song and story, 

Lies our bold dragoon. 

Pelham, the “Great Cannoneer”, dies at the head of his men 
at Kelly’s Ford, and John Esten Cook, in his poem, the “Band in 
the Pines”, pens the unforgettable lines : 

Oh, band in the pinewood cease ! 

Cease with your splendid call ; 

The living are brave and noble, 

But the dead are bravest of all ! 

Oh, band in the pinewood cease ! 

Or the heart will melt with tears, 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


19 


For the gallant eyes and the smiling lips, 

And the voices of old years. 

Now the War for Southern Independence is ended. The hopes 
of the South lie crushed and bleeding. The Bonnie Blue Flag that 
waved so proudly and defiantly in happier days has become “The 
Conquered Banner” of Father Ryan : 

Furl that Banner, for ’tis weary; 

Round its staff ’tis drooping dreary ; 

Furl it, fold it, it is best; 

For there’s not a man to wave it, 

And there’s not a sword to save it, 

And there’s not one left to lave it 
In the blood which heroes gave it ; 

And its foes now scorn and brave it ; 

Furl it, hide it, let it rest ! 

The Soldier of the North 

In the tenderness and sweetness of this memorable hour, let 
it be said that the Soldier of the Confederacy and the Southerner 
think with admiration and kindness of the Sons of the North who 
followed Grant in the trying days of old. In this hour we pay 
tribute to the courage and valor of the Northern Soldiers, and we 
remember the gallantry and loyalty with which they fought under 
the Stars and Stripes. They fought for the principles they believed 
just and right, and chivalrously died defending the ideals inherited 
from their fathers. 


The Tragic Era 

Brave as you and your comrades were in time of war on the 
field of battle, braver yet were you in the trying days that followed 
“The Surrender”, the twelve years known in American History as 
‘The Tragic Era’ or ‘Reconstruction’. 

The kind and conciliatory Abraham Lincoln lay in a martyr’s 
grave but a few days after Appomattox. All of his sensible poli- 
cies were scrapped in a spirit of hate and vengeance. The South 
was to be crushed so that it could never rise again. Your civil 
and military leaders were arrested and chained in dungeons. You

were branded as traitors. Members of the Confederate cabinet 
were hunted down as criminals. The South was subjected to 
every indignity that cunning and hatred could devise. Personal 
ambitions and party motives moved those in control of the Wash- 
ington government to put the people of the South to torture. Of 
this Traigc Era, Mr. Bowers has truthfully noted: “Never have 
American public men in responsible positions, directing the destiny 
of the nation, been so brutal, so hypocritical and corrupt. The 
Constitution was treated as a door-mat on which politicians and 
army officers wiped their feet after wading in the muck. Never 
has the Supreme Court been treated with such ineffable contempt, 
and never has that tribunal so often cringed before the clamor of 
the mob.” 


Because the Southern States exercised their reserved right to 
withdraw from the Union, and because you followed the teachings 
of your fathers, and the teachings of the Founding Fathers of this 
Republic, you and your comrades and your people were denied, 
during those twelve years, the right to vote, the right to hold of- 
fice, and the right to sit on juries. Your State governments were 
abolished. Your States became parts of military districts and fed- 
eral military commanders set aside your constitutions, your laws 
and your State officers, and terrorized your people. Your States 
were treated as conquered provinces. Never, in all the long annals 
of history, has a defeated people been treated so cruelly and so 
shamefully. 


But your courage, your daring, your resourcefulness and your 
iron determination ended that horrible nightmare of reconstruction 
and redeemed your States and your people from the rule of the 
Scalawag and the Carpet Bagger. You restored Anglo-Saxon civ- 
ilization to the South, and finally the States of the Southern Con- 
federacy, unshackled and unfettered, stood erect once more, to 
take their rightful place in the government of their country. 


The deeds you did, the difficulties you overcame, and the 
courage you showed in those twelve tragic years after the South 
laid down her arms, and accepted in good faith the arbitrament of 
war, today bring the glow of pride and admiration to the cheek 
of every loyal American who loves country, and bring you the 
everlasting gratitude of the people of the Southern States.

What God Has Spared You To See 

Our Heavenly Father has generously given you length of days 
that you might live to see your stricken land, “a land scarred and 
riven by the plowshare of war and billowed with the graves of 
her dead”, rise from the ashes and rebuild her civilization. 

You have lived to see the sons of the South fill with honor 
and distinction the highest offices in the land. Woodrow Wilson, 
Virginia born, won enduring fame in the White House of the Na- 
tion. Edward D. White, a Confederate veteran, became one of 
the great chief justices of the United States, and Southerners like 
L. Q. C. Lamar, Joseph R. Lamar, Horace H. Burton and James 
F. Byrnes have sat with honor upon the court. 

In the cabinets of our presidents have served since the War 
for Southern Independence capable statesmen and distinguished 
Americans — men like A. H. Garland, Hilary A. Herbert, Jacob M. 
Dickinson, Luke E. Wright, Carter Glass, Daniel C. Roper and 
Cordell Hull. 

In the War with Spain Joe Wheeler won immortal glory at 
Santiago and Hobson won the plaudits of the Nation when he 
sank the Merrimac. 

On every battlefield of the first World War, and on all the 
seas, the sons of the South, with the patriotism learned at your 
knees, fought manfully and gave their lives that freedom might 
not perish from the earth. 

In today’s great struggle, hearts stoutened with the courage 
you gave them, souls strengthened with your spirit, and wills im- 
bued with your indomitable determination, the Sons of the South 
are hourly exemplifying the noblest attributes of American man- 
hood, and are winning a victory that is destined to be the greatest 
and noblest in the long history of mankind, for they are rolling 
back the tides of cruelty, oppression and wrong. 

God has let your days be long in the land. He has brought 
you to this hour that you might see with your own eyes the dark- 
ness recede and the morning light break across the hills as barbar- 
ism and tyranny are scourged, mortally wounded, back to their 


22 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


lairs. He has permitted you to lift up your eyes and see the flags 
of the Allied Nations waving proudly in the breezes in all the 
grace and beauty of their symbolism, floating victoriously and de- 
fiantly o’er land and sea, and blessing with the rippling of their 
folds a world in which Freedom, Justice, Decency and Peace shall 
dwell forevermore. 

Well Done, Good and Faithful Soldiers 

And now, as we come to the close of this solemn hour in your 
final reunion, take with you, Venerable Veterans of the Confed- 
eracy, from the beauty of this hallowed place, and from the sweet- 
ness of this hour, to strengthen and bless you, to be your stay and 
comfort, the knowledge that the Sons and Daughters of the South, 
and true Americans everywhere, stand today in tribute to you and 
the ideals which you nourished. 

Your people remember, with a gratitude which shall never 
wane, the bravery and sacrifices you made during the days of The 
Sixties, and they recall with loving appreciation the courage and 
patience with which you threw off the oppressor’s yoke and re- 
builded your shattered civilization at the end of that bloody strug- 
gle. They are grateful that you have preserved the blessings of 
Anglo-Saxon civilization for the happiness and contentment of 
countless generations to come. 

May the great God of Peace, the God who comforted Jefferson 
Davis in the hour of trial, the God who sustained Robert E. Lee 
in the day of battle, and the God Stonewall Jackson worshipped 
in his tent ,the God who has blessed you during the years of your 
long lives, stay close beside you, and walk with you in friendly 
companionship the rest of the way and bring you to the Crown of 
Life. 


When from out Heaven’s blue skies you hear, sweet and low, 
like bells at evening pealing, the summons of your warrior com- 
rades to come and join them, and to pitch your tents on Fame’s 
eternal camping ground, be assured, beloved and honored Soldiers 
of the South, you will hear, too, the voice of the Great Commander 
saying : 

Well done, thou good and faithful soldiers, enter thou 
now into the joys of thy Lord.

ROBERT E. LEE 

By Marshall Wingfield 

(An address delivered at the annual Robert E. Lee Banquet in St. 
Louis, in 1944, by Marshall Wingfield, Commander-in-Chief of the Sons 
of Confederate Veterans. The banquet was sponsored by Camp Sterling 
Price, No. 145, S.C.V.) 


One hundred and thirty-seven years ago Napoleon bestrode 
the world like a Colossus; Aaron Burr was tried for treason; the 
importation of slaves was abolished; Fulton’s steamboat made its 
first successful run, and an embargo was passed which forbade 
any ship to enter or leave any port of the United States. 

But there was no embargo on the port of souls, and so there 
came to Stratford in Virginia, the soul of one who was destined 
to be the inspiration of mankind as long as the world loves honor. 
A fifty-one year old soldier, “Light Horse Harry” Lee, and Anne 
Hill Carter who had been his second wife for fourteen years, named 
the second of their five children Robert Edward. 

A word about Stratford may not be out of place here. The 
house stands in Westmoreland County, about a mile from the 
south bank of the Potomac. It was built by Thomas Lee, grand- 
son of Richard Lee, the emigrant, and given the name of the Lee 
estate in England. It has been called the most impresisve pile of 
brick on this continent. Not for size, of course, but for historical 
significance. In one of its rooms were born two signers of the 
Declaration of Independence, — Richard Henry Lee, who moved 
the Resolution in Congress to declare the colonies free, and Francis 
Lightfoot Lee, his brother. 

The law of heredity declares that there is a sense in which 
all men are not born free and equal ; that the sins of the fathers 
are visited upon the children “unto the third and fourth genera- 
tion” ; that to be born in certain families is to enter life handi- 
capped by downward-pulling tendencies ; that to be born into 
certain other families is to enter life with a distinct advantage. 

Robert E. Lee, whose 137th birthday we now celebrate, enter- 
ed into life with the cumulative moralities which kings and princes 


24 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


cannot confer and which untoward circumstances cannot take 
away. Robert E. Lee entered life not with the advantage of 
hereditary rank, but with those cumulative virtues which give a 
patent of nobility that no college of heralds and arms can ever 
bestow. He entered life with the challenge of a noble ancestry. 
Sir William Draper writing of the British Army, said that for 
years the strictest care was taken to fill the commissions with 
such gentlemen as had the glory of their ancestors to support. 
Robert E. Lee had the honor of his ancestors to support. He 
drew from his father and mother a code which made it treason 
to manhood to fear anything but dishonor, and disgrace to quail 
before anything but cowardice. He was taught to love truth for 
truth’s sake, and to hold that place and power are not so de- 
sirable as to be purchased at the price of honor. It was this 
idealism which caused him to decline the command of the Federal 
Army which Francis P. Blair offered him in April 1861, and 
led him to exclaim, “How can I draw my sword upon Virginia, 
my native state !” 


Heredity gave Lee a great body. Men liked to look upon him. 
Not Pericles nor Washington had a nobler physique. He could 
assume no attitude that was not graceful. A famous Englishman 
who visited Lee while he was encamped near Fredericksburg, 
wrote : “General Lee is the most perfect animal form I ever saw. 
He is also the most manly and entire gentleman I ever saw. Ad- 
ded to his beauty of form and countenance, are his perfect man- 
ners. Many men have been great without looking the part. Lee is 
great, and his very physique proclaims it. I have seen many of 
the great men of my time, and Robert E. Lee is incomparably the 
greatest looking of them all.” 

Lee was the product of a civilization competent to produce 
him. The civilization which existed in the South before the Civil 
War, was nourished in the bosom of an agriculture which poured 
its wealth into the lap of the world. And notwithstanding the 
jeers and sneers of urban society for things rural, the voice of 
history declares that most of the world’s great men grew up close 
to the soil. In the quiet fields and woods of Westmoreland County, 
Lee captured a quality of life which is all too elusive in the stir- 
ring life of cities. And the serenity of soul which came to him 
then he kept to the end, even in the midst of war shock and under 
the exciting sounds of battle.

While heredity and environment must be taken into the record 
in any accounting for Lee, these forces certainly are not the whole 
explanation of his exceptional personality. The son of a noble 
ancestry and of a brilliant civilization, may be so weak-willed as 
to lose the benefits of both. Lee appropriated his fine heritage 
by the exercise of a great purpose. It is within the realm of the 
will that man comes to true greatness. It was by the power of 
a great purpose that Lee came to the peaks of great achieving. 


Lee’s fine body and distinguished family both had their perils. 
He might have surrendered to pride in heredity, brilliant marriage 
and a great estate, but he willed it otherwise. Instead of taking 
the leisure which he might have considered his native right, he 
applied himself to a profession. He was not snobbishly interested 
in his pedigree. When a genealogist proposed to trace out his 
lineage he replied very simply : “The money would be better 
spent in helping the poor.” Nor was Lee conscious of his fine 
body. He took his graces for granted. 


Men shape circumstances, and circumstances shape men. Lee 
came to national notice at a later period in life than any other 
great American. It is not likely that he would have come to 
national notice at all had it not been for the War of the States. 
Nullification had been considered a settled issue for thirty years. 
But nothing is ever a settled issue in a democracy. And so the 
Southern States seceded. As a native Southerner, I submit that 
love of freedom was behind secession. And I also submit that 
a broader view of freedom would have saved the country from secession. 
I refer to that view of freedom which was held by “The Tentmaker 
of Tarsus” who declared, “Though I am free, I bring myself under 
bondage that I may gain the more freedom.” 


It is clear from our vantage point, that a permanently divided 
union would have abridged the freedom which we enjoy today 
as citizens of states that are united. We had to forego a freedom 
from something in order to have a larger freedom — the freedom for 
something. When freedom is for something, as well as from somthing, 
it is always richer and finer. We are never wiser than when we 
curtail our own liberties in order to win a larger freedom. That 
was the lesson America learned after the war had put Yankee 
Doodle on the pension list and Dixie on crutches.

The men in blue went home to cities and farms that had not 
been invaded. They returned as victors. Five of their army 
officers went on to the White House. That is a danger which fol- 
lows every war. The brilliant soldier is often pushed into the 
place of the chief executive, though military genius certainly does 
not argue fitness for the presidency. 

The men in gray went back to devastated farms and ruined 
cities, to begin all over again. What did their “good gray chief- 
tain’’ do? Benjamin Morgan Palmer said in New Orleans at a 
memorial service held while Lee was being buried in Virginia, 
“There is a grandeur in misfortune when borne by a noble heart 
without complaining or breaking and that grandeur was the crown 
of Lee.” Lee might have had an imposing home in England, 
and an ample annuity from an admiring member of the British 
peerage ; but he said, “I cannot desert my people.” He might 
have had a large annual income by merely lending his name 
to an American business concern; but he said, “I cannot accept 
money which I have not earned.” He resolved to stay with his 
people and to give them the benefit of his example. Lee’s true 
greatness appeared in the post-war years of collapse and frustra- 
tion. Waterloo was the end of Napoleon, but Appomattox was 
the beginning of Lee. 

After Appomattox, Lee proved that nothing is so unconquer- 
able as the soul which defies mischance and disaster. The soldier 
who became a college president built better than he knew. He 
believed that the future belonged to educated people. President 
Jefferson had said that people could be trusted if they were in- 
formed. How to inform them — how to keep information uncolored 
by partisanship and undistorted by special interests — was the ques- 
tion which vexed Jefferson, and which still vexes us. 

In disaster Lee continued to lead the people of the South. He 
refused to defend himself, or to discuss the past, or to harbor 
bitterness. It was his conviction that now allegiance to the united 
country was the only honorable and intelligent course. His post- 
war years were free from dramatics and heroics. One may look at 
them steadily and then say with Milton’s “Samson Agonistes”, 

“Nothing is here for tears, nothing to wail, 

Or knock the breast, no weakness, no contempt, 

Dispraise or blame.” 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


27 


Too proud to supplicate, save at the Throne of God, too brave 
to bow the head under the bludgeonings of fate, Lee set to work 
with battered and broken tools to help rebuild the shattered for- 
tunes of his people. And under the inspiration of his example, 
his fellowmen have so wrought, that from the ashes of disaster 
and the dust of desolation “the South has been raised from the 
dead, though the prints of the nails are still in its hands and the 
scar of the spear thrust is still in its side.” 

Southern chivalry is frequently alluded to by the stranger with 
derision. But it was more than a name. It was a spirit, — the 
spirit of those gentler humanities without which no man can 
rightly lay claim to the title of gentleman. Some one has said : 
“Chivalry is written large in the history of this Republic. It was 
chivalry which faced the unknown West with fearless hearts and 
carved an empire out of the heritage of the Montezumas ; it stayed 
the heart of Taylor and Bragg on the blazing heights of Buena 
Vista; it buoyed the spirit of Scott and Lee before the walls 
of Mexico; it kept the faith at Valley Forge and Yorktown; it 
met undismayed the red storm of fire and blood at Chancellors- 
ville and the Wilderness ; it marched up the stony ridge at Gettys- 
burg as if on a holiday excursion ; it did not draw back from the 
mortal trenches at Petersburg.” 

There are those who admit the chivalry of the deeds of Valley 
Forge, Yorktown, Buena Vista and the Alamo, but who deny it 
to the stirring deeds of Southern men in the War of the States, 
on the grounds that the latter were performed in a base cause. 
Meaning, of course, that the deeds were done in order to hold 
a people in bondage. How long will supposedly enlightened men 
believe that the War of the States was fought on the issue of 
slavery? If there had been no war, the institution of slavery 
would soon have been outlawed by the developing conscience of 
mankind. From conscientious scruples alone, many slaveholders 
had liberated their slaves before the outbreak of the war, and 
yet they were as ardent champions of the Southern cause as any 
slaveholder. Let men who profess to be intelligent have done 
with the error that the War of the States was “a slaveholder’s 
war.” It was a war for States Rights. It was a conflict between 
the Federal and the State governments, between the tyranny of 
centralization, which has come again, and the democracy of sov- 
ereign states. It was a contest for power. Nor was the War of 


28 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


the States the first conflict between these two opposing forces. 
We must not forget that these two ideas strove together from 
the very time the nation was founded, and once, at least, with 
almost fatal results. 

There was never a time from 1787 to 1860, when the strife 
between the Union and the States was quiescent. This strife 
began at the birth of the nation. It was intensified by the forma- 
tion and adoption of the Constitution of 1787. It was further 
aggravated by the struggle of 1820, relative to the admission of 
Missouri into the Union. The fierce contest regarding the Tariff 
in 1832, the issue of the Mexican War, and the repeal of the 
Missouri Compromise, — all these added further fuel to the fire. 
The question of slavery was seized upon by those who were al- 
ready irritated, and thus a multitude of currents converged to 
form the flood which swept away the voluntary union of the States. 

From the maelstrom of the Civil War we soon shall have 
naught but written story. The last of those who fought its battles 
will soon have folded their tents and departed. The bitterness 
between the North and South will pass. The valor of our fathers 
will live forever. The years will rust the hostile guns and level 
the old trenches and rifle pits, but through all these changes, 
there shall stand in immutable splendor the name of Robert E. 
Lee, as secure in the firmament of history as the stars are in the 
heavens. And as the silent procession of the ages shall pass into 
the quiet halls of history, our children, and children’s children, 
will gain inspiration from this man who looms majestic from the 
ashes of disaster. And when that relentless Spirit of the Hour 
Glass and Scythe which we call Time, shall have measured off 
a thousand years, those who love heroism and devotion will re- 
call the good grey face of Robert E. Lee who placed his all in 
the scales of his people and lost all save honor. The time will 
come when every section of America will unite in the exalted 
language of B. H. Hill, and declare that Lee “was a foe without 
hate ; a friend without treachery ; a soldier without cruelty ; a 
victor without oppression ; and a victim without murmuring. He 
was a public officer without vices; a private citizen without wrong; 
a neighbor without reproach ; a Christian without hypocrisy and 
a man without guile. He was Caesar, without his ambition ; 
Frederick, without his tyranny; Napoleon, without his selfishness 
and Washington without his reward.” 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


29 


The time will come when we shall be able to speak of the 
heroism of our fathers without stirring up sectional animosities. 
As the victories of Pompey and of Caesar were the common re- 
nown of Rome, so the achievements of both North and South 
shall become the common renown of America. As the red rose 
and the white rose are now blended in British history, so the 
Blue and the Grey shall be blended in the garment of American 
history. The Athenians and the Spartans erected monuments of 
perishable wood to celebrate victories over their own fellow- 
countrymen, but they built monuments of enduring stone to com- 
memorate their triumphs over foreign foes. The Romans never 
permitted a triumph to any victor in their civil wars. If the 
peoples called heathen refused to perpetuate the hatreds of their 
civil life, shall we be less magnanimous? 

Regional lines and sectional differences will no doubt continue, 
but they will continue as landmarks of that diversity which is the 
law of the universe. I have heard of an American politician who 
so wanted the votes of all the people in the audience that he 
shouted, “I know no North or South; I know no East or West.” 
Whereupon an urchin in the gallery piped out, “Mister, you better 
go home and study your goggerfy.” It is not likely that the time 
will ever come when we shall be able to love all sections alike, 
any more than we shall be able to love all persons alike. But why 
may we not believe that the highest patriotism is the patriotism 
which loves one’s own region best? 

“God gave all men all earth to love, 

But since our hearts are small, 

Ordained for each one spot should prove 
Beloved over all.” 

And, assuredly, there is one thing which we may devoutly be- 
lieve, namely, that the time will never come when Americans of 
other sections shall think it treason for Southerners to pause on 
Lee’s birthday to look once more on the bonnie blue flag which 
was borne by hands that now are folded, blest by lips that now 
are dust, and loved by hearts that now are still. Our fathers 
santcified that flag by the noblest blood of the Anglo-Saxon race. 
After having consecrated it with the baptism of blood on many 
a well-fought field, they baptized it with tears at Appomattox. 
And by their blood, and by their tears, we who are their sons 


30 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


and daughters, call on the Most High to witness our vow that 
we shall never become so engrossed in material things that we 
shall fail to pause now and then and recall the good grey face and 
the vanished years, that they may speak to us once more of a 
valor that should never die. 

As long as time shall last, we shall see our good grey chief- 
tain as he was in the days after Appomattox. We shall see him 
as, oppressed by ill-health and by the sense of defeat, he set about 
rebuilding his shattered South with all the constancy and resolu- 
tion he had shown in war. We shall see him as, in the early 
autumn of 1865, he rides out of Richmond. The victorious Fed- 
eral Army had come to Virginia’s Capitol. Its generals rode 
through the streets of the city and on into comparative obscurity. 
But now another horseman comes. Even the name of his steed is 
destined to outlive some of the conquering generals. “Traveler” 
is bespattered with mud for the autumn rains have set in. His 
head droops as if to express the sadness which his rider hides. 
Rectitude and self-respecting griefs are written in the furrows of 
the rider’s face. The horseman’s very carriage proclaims that 
he wears invisible badges of victory and carries spoils of honor 
in his heart. His garments are worn from hard service, but the 
majestic composure of the wearer transforms his clothing into 
royal raiment. His leggings are mud-spattered, but to the eyes 
of those who watch him ride away, these old leggings are part 
of the armor of a very gallant knight. There are no visible ban- 
ners streaming over this grey-bearded horseman. He rides not 
at the head of a victorious army. There are no crowds to hail 
him. He rides alone. He rides alone in the rain. Whither 
bound is this solitary horseman? He is bound for Lexington to 
take, at $1500 per year, the presidency of a little college which 
bears the name of Washington, but which, through all the com- 
ing years, is destined to wear the added name of Lee. Is that 
as far as this lone horseman is riding? Ah, no! He is riding 
farther than Lexington. He is riding farther than the confines of 
Virginia whose boundaries were described in an old book as ex- 
tending “as far west as may be convenient.” He is riding farther 
than the shores of America. He is riding farther than the fabled 
winged horse, Pegasus, could take him. He is riding into the 
hearts of all people who love honor. He is riding to one of the 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


31 


high hills of history, so that man might look up and learn how 
to win honor from defeat and how to make failure glorious. 
This vanquished victor of the stainless soul is riding forward to 
take an undisputed place in the halls of universal fame.

ORIGIN OF SLAVERY IN AMERICA 

By Mattie F. Allison 

(This paper on the Origin of Slavery in America is one of a number 
preserved in the archives of the Virginia Clay-Clopton Chapter, U. D. C., 
Huntsville, Ala., and placed in the Alabama State Department of Archives 
and History through the courtesy of Miss Alice McCravey, of Huntsville.) 

A search-light back through the temple of time reveals the 
fact that from time immemorial, slavery in some form existed, 
but that is not within my province, save to mention, that as early 
as 1442 Antonio Goncalvez carried a cargo of negroes to Portugal. 
Such was the beginning of the African trade, and in 1445, slave- 
marts were opened in Africa, and the trade took on an activity 
that lasted for centuries. The negro slavery of modern times was 
a sequel to the discovery of America. The same year that marks 
the meeting of the first Assembly in Virginia, 1619, a portentous 
personage appeared on the soil of North America — the African 
slave. A Dutch vessel sailed up the James River and offered for 
sale to the planters twenty negroes captured on the cost of Africa. 
They were purchased and put to work on the tobacco plantations. 
These were the first slaves. To the men who watched the landing 
of this handful of negroes, it was doubtless rather an unimportant 
matter. Yet it was the small beginning of a system that was des- 
tined to exert an immense influence upon our country. Indeed, 
it may be likened to the tiny cloud before the storm, in the days 
of the prophets of old. This was the origin and commencement 
of slavery in the United States. It is significant to note that in 
the year that Harvard College was founded, 1636, the first slave- 
ship built in America, was launched at Marblehead, Mass. It was 
used for transporting to this country slaves captured on the coast 
of Africa. Two years later this same ship brought the first cargo 
of negro-slaves into Massachusetts, to be sold to the settlers. This 
was the beginning of an extensive trade by which negroes were 
carried in New England ships, to all English Colonies and their 
owners grew rich in the traffic. The slave-trade was attended 
often with extreme inhumanity. The vessels which transported 
the negroes from Africa to America were overcrowded to such 
an extent that a large proportion died in the passage over, and 
the treatment of the negro slave after his arrival and sale de- 
pended much upon the character of his master. There seems to 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


33 


have been no difference of opinion as to the right to sell him, as 
they were captives, and their servitude was until death. The 
negro-trader was generally held in odium. Often the mother was 
sold from her children, and families were separated. How un- 
happy those first slaves must have been, torn from their homes, 
taken to a strange land, with a strange language, confronted by a 
race of different color, not able to understand ; treated often with 
cruelty. How terrified and stupefied they must have been. In 
the northern states with their cold climate, commercial pursuits 
and small farms, the negro number was never very large. Slavery 
established itself firmly in the Southern colonies, where the great 
tobacco, rice and cotton plantations created a demand for labor. 
The negro seems specially designed by nature for Southern field 
work, his black skin and thick skull rendering him almost imper- 
vious to the sun’s heat. The negro in the cotton field singing is 
always a picturesque object. In the South, the slaves increased 
as rapidly as rabbits in a burrow, and at the close of the French 
War, there were not less than 500,000 of whom 8/9 were south 
of Mason and Dixon’s line. Just for remembrance, I take the 
following notice from the Boston Times, September 6, 1773 — “I will 
sell two fine male slaves to-morrow, at 16 Anne St., to ye highest 
bidder, 11 o’clock.” In the Post Boy June 8, 1771 are these notable 
words : — “A negro woman, or wench — are to be sold — inquire of 
the printer.” In the Gazetteer of April 18, 1779, was the notification 
of the proposed sale of a black boy, sundry horses, and “Tim 
Whiskey”, a little worse for wear, the former being named last, 
as least important. Again in the Post Boy July 6, 1771, much in the 
same spirit, is advertized a convenient pew in Kings Chapel and 
a likely negro man. Prior to that date was a long list of second 
hand furniture, a very likely looking live black moose, and a big 
negro man. It is interesting to know that an indictment in Wor- 
cester County, 1791, against a white man for beating a black one, 
was the basis of action in the Supreme Court, in which a resolution 
in the Declaration of Independence, was cited with triumphant 
effect against the master who was found guilty and fined 40 shil- 
lings. This resulted in practically the extinction of slavery in 
Massachusetts. It never recovered from the blow. At that time 
there were hundreds of slaves in New Hampshire, Connecticut 
and Rhode Island. At one time Lafette, the pirate, captured sev- 
eral cargoes of negroes, bound for the coast of Massachusetts and 
sold them into Louisiana. As late as a few years back there was 
an old negro slave in Courtland, Ala., whose body was tattooed.

He came from Africa. It was singular that while slavery was 
legalized in the British Colonies, it was at the same time, a law 
in England (1772) as soon as a slave set foot in England, he was 
free. If he returned to America he was reclaimed. The word 
slavery conjures up much that is pleasant, from that far-off time. 
Old memories come back like visions, and always with the sweet- 
ness that gilds the past. One of these, that memory holds very 
dear, and dwells on with love, is of my kind old Mammy. She 
was of Indian blood and had the high cheek bones, bright piercing 
eyes and coarse straight hair of her race. Only hers was gray — 
hair that we children begged eagerly to comb, a privilege which 
was granted, with the injunction not to pull hard. In my day she was 
too old to work, and spent her time under the spreading branches 
of an apple-tree, on which climbed a hop-vine, knitting an endless 
number of socks of coarse gray yarn. I never knew who wore 
them. I can close my eyes and see that peaceful picture with 
startling vividness. We clustered around her like bees and car- 
ried all our little woes to her. She soothed our childish grief with 
unvarying kindness, for she loved her nurslings, bad though we 
were. Under that dark skin beat a heart, honest and true. No 
one ever sang, or ever will again like Mammy. We used to sit 
entranced under the spell of her wierd old songs. We all prom- 
ised her that when we grew up and married, and there were little 
one, one should bear her name. The childish promise was never 
fulfilled. As far as I know Mammy Phillis never had a namesake. 
Her faithfulness ended only with death. An incident that is mirth- 
provoking instead of tearful was of this same period. Among my 
Father’s house-hold servants was a strong strapping young negro, 
whose name was Christopher Columbus, called Kit, for short, (he 
was long afterwards a well known town character). He had been 
guilty of some grave disobedience, and needed the ministrations 
of a hickory or birch, wielded by a strong hand. This power was 
vested in the person of Marshall Franks, who was town-whip per. My 
Father sent Kit to him with a sealed note, containing instructions, 
telling him to wait for an answer. On the way, Kit, who was a 
smart negro, “began to smell a rat”, met Warren, an ignorant 
negro boy my Father had recently purchased, and gave him the 
note, with the order. Kit waited in hiding close by and Warren 
went in and got the — answer. Upon being questioned later, at 
home, Kit’s defense was: “You see Marse William, I was tuk with 
a powful sickness, peered to me like I was gwyne die, dere in the 
street. I seed Warren and I gin it to him and Lord, Marse Wil-

liam, Warren sure got it bad.” I have heard my Father laugh 
heartily in telling this, and he afterward published it. I know the 
Chapter are wondering what connection these two pictures from 
a far away past, have to do with my subject, and rightly they do 
not belong here. An over-powering memory that would not be 
stilled, prompted the writing.

MONUMENT TO NEGRO, HEYWARD SHEPHERD 
ERECTED BY DAUGHTERS OF CONFEDERACY AT 
HARPER’S FERRY, WEST VIRGINIA. IN 1931. 

(One of the guests at the banquet given to the Confederate Veterans 
and Sons of Veterans in Montgomery during the Reunion held in Mont- 
gomery, Sept. 27-28, 1944, proposed that a monument should be erected to 
Negro slaves faithful to their masters and their masters’ families. Mrs. L. 
M. Bashinsky, one of the distinguished guests at the banquet, arose and in- 
formed the gentleman that the Daughters of the Confederacy had already 
discharged that obligation and explained that in 1931 a boulder was un- 
veiled at Harper’s Ferry, West Virginia, to the memory of Heyward 
Shepherd and other Negroes faithful to their duties in the troubled crisis 
of the War Between the States. The Editor of this magazine approached 
Mrs. Bashinsky at the conclusion of the banquet and asked her for the ad- 
dress which she had made as President-General of the U.D.C. at the unveil- 
ing of the monument. The address was located in an issue of the publica- 
tion Confederate Veteran of November 1931, and is herewith reproduced 
for the information of our white and colored citizens. In the Minutes of 
the General Convention held in Jacksonville, Fla., in the Fall of 1931, Mrs. 
Bashinsky in her report as President-General of the organization gave the 
history of the movement that culminated in the erection and unveiling of 
the monument. She explained that eleven years previously, at the Ashe- 
ville, N. C., Convention, Mrs. Roy W. McKinney, President-General, 
recommended the placing of this boulder at Harper’s Ferry. The boulder 
was procured and with the expectation of placing it on the Baltimore and 
Ohio Railroad property was inscribed to that effect but the railroad of- 
ficials never gave their consent to the Daughters to place the monument 
at the locality where Shepherd received his fatal wounds. Through the in- 
tervening years Mrs. Bashinsky having learned that Dr. Matthew Page 
Andrews was the first to suggest this memorial, wrote to him asking him 
to interview the Mayor and leading citizens of the town of Harper’s Ferry, 
with the view to interesting them in placing the Shepherd memorial there. 
Finally through the Mayor, Mr. James Ransom, with the unanimous ap- 
proval of the Council, a lot was provided near the scene of the tragedy. 
The small triangular plat was given to the Daughters of the Confederacy 
by Dr. Walter E. Dittmeyer, son of the Union sympathizer. This change 
of location necessitated some changes in the wording on the face of the 
boulder, all of which was reincised. All arrangements of the dedicatory 
program were referred to Dr. Andrews who initiated the idea of the mon- 
• ument and the occasion gave universal staisf action.)

Address by Mrs. L. M. Bashinsky, President General, U. D. C., at 
the dedication of the Faithful Slave Memorial, Harper's Ferry, W . V a., 
October 19, 1931. 

In a happy sense this is an outstanding day in the history oi 
the United Daughters of the Confederacy, since it marks the con- 
summation of efforts extending through several years — efforts that 
find fruition and culmination in the exercises of this hour. 

We are sometimes asked, “Why look back?” “Why remem- 
ber?” We answer in the language of the great statesman: “Look- 
ing backward is looking forward. Those never look forward who 
never look backward.” The command “to remember” is written 
large in the Book of Books from the terrific thunder of Sinai to 
the seraphic visions of Patmos. 

Indeed, memorials as an aid to memory are as old as time 
from the most beautiful, the radiant bow of promise — “when I 
bring a cloud over the earth, the bow shall be seen in the cloud, 
and I will remember my covenant” — to the most sacred, the Chris- 
tian Eucharist, “This do in remembrance of Me.” 

We are told that Memnon, at the rising of the sun, sang to 
the Libyan Sands of the unreturning Brave, and we know that 
stones from the bed of the Jordan erected as a memorial on its 
banks testified to the passage over the river dry-shod of the Is- 
raelites from their Wilderness wanderings into the Land of Prom- 
ise. 


It is fitting, then, that we should gather here in this pic- 
turesque town, amid all the lavish natural beauty which encom- 
passes it, to pay tribute to the memory of Heyward Shepherd, a 
colored man, a freed man, who gave his life in defense of his em- 
ployer’s property, and in memory of many others of his race who 
were loyal and true during a period that tried men’s souls. 

“He that loseth his life shall find it” is an expression of the 
philosophy which inspired Heyward Shepherd to sacrifice life it- 
self in defense of a great ideal, that of fidelity to a trust. In Holy 
Writ we read: “Whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things 
are honorable, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are 
just, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good 
report, if there be any merit, if there be any praise, think on these 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


39 


things.” We are here today to “think on these things.” Heyward 
Shepherd’s conduct was honorable, just, and true, and merits the 
praise we bring him. 

I do not envy the man his composure who can stand unmoved 
in presence of the memories that this simple ceremony is calcu- 
lated to evoke. Memories that carry us back to that tragic era, 
1859, when at this place was delivered the blow which so aggra- 
vated the passions of men that it hastened the sounding of the 
tocsin of war in the sixties. 

John Brown and his friends believed the Negroes would flock 
to their call in multitudes to burst the shackles of slavery and 
bring the inevitable and irrepressible conflict to a quick and de- 
cisive end. Shortly before that fatal night, John Brown had a 
secret conference with Fred Douglass, the most distinguished 
Negro of his age, hoping to enlist his sympathy and induce him 
to encourage the Negroes to join the standard of Brown and open 
a far-flung race war that would engulf the South in a veritable 
maelstrom of inferno. Douglass shrank with horror from the 
proposal and predicted that any such effort would end in failure. 
As has so frequently happened in history, the real object, that is, 
in a narrow sense, the immediate aim and purpose for which the 
blow was struck, was never realized, because the methods adopted 
were based on error and misunderstanding. 

I have sometimes wondered if it could be that those who en- 
couraged that enterprise at Harper’s Ferry were entirely ignorant 
of the horrors of a race war in Haiti, that lasted from 1791 to 
1804? Long, horrible years they were, when the whites were com- 
pletely exterminated and Haiti, the richest colony in the posses- 
sion of France, was plundered and pillaged and all vestages of 
civilization burned and destroyed. 

Why was it that a race war failed to materialize in the South, 
when it spread like wild fire in Haiti? The only explanation lies 
in the differences between the white people and the Negroes in 
the South, who merit praise, and those in Haiti, both white and 
colored, who deserved condemnation. The destiny of a man and 
also the destiny of a nation is largely determined by natural in- 
herited characteristics. There is a vast difference between the 
Anglo-Saxon and the Latin. 


40 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


In the fierce gladiatorial combats in the Roman arena, a sym- 
pathetic, sportsman-like hand was seldom, if ever, extended to the 
defeated contender, whose destruction was demanded by the spec- 
tators, by the inexorable sign of “thumbs down” and thus sealed 
his doom. 

On the other hand, it is natural for the Anglo-Saxon to revere 
human life and to sympathize with the downtrodden, and despite 
the bitter propaganda and flamboyant literature of that period, 
the fact remains that, with but few exceptions, the colored people 
were well fed, well housed, and well cared for in the South, were 
treated humanely, were taught the great truths of God’s Holy 
Word, and became ardent believers in their Lord and Saviour. 
Provision was made for them to worship in all the churches, and 
their quarters rang with the rhythmic music of their spirituals, 
their hymns of devotion and religious fervor filling the evening 
hours with their “Swing low, Sweet Chariot, coming fer to carry 
me home.” 

And the “black mammy” — how devoted was she to her white 
“chilluns,” and how devoted the white children were to their 
“black mammies.” I speak from experience, for ours never left 
us until I, the youngest child, was married and the home “broken 
up,” the older generation of colored folks having passed to the 
Great Beyond. These old mammies formed a necessary and es- 
sential element in the family life of the South. They took part in 
the birthday festivities of the children, became their confidants 
in their love affairs, carried the love missives, were present at the 
weddings, and felt proud and elated when their daughters, in turn, 
became the attendants of the children of their white “chillun.” 
Now, I ask you, how, under such conditions and with such exist- 
ing relationships, could the sons of these “mammies” be prevailed 
upon to use “spikes and staves” against their white masters and 
friends? Fred Douglass was right. It could not be done. 

In contrast with these conditions, it is related that in Haiti 
the white people were entirely indifferent to the obligations and 
responsibilities which civilization and conscience demand. They 
loved to revel in ease and luxury and did not shrink from merci- 
lessly exploiting their slaves that they might extract the wealth 
needed for lives of self-indulgence. They had no concern what- 
ever for the spiritual welfare of their slaves, who were permitted 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


41 


to revert to paganism and the revolting practices of “voodo” rites. 

In his history of Haiti, H. Davis stated: “In fiendish cruelty 
there seems to have been but little choice between white and black. 
The French burned captured negroes alive, broke their bodies on 
wheels of torture, or buried them up to their necks in sand/’ Des- 
tiny wills that men “reap what they sow/’ 

Who today is so ignorant that they would charge the Anglo- 
Saxons of the South with being capable of committing such atro- 
cious cruelties as these just cited? And who would dare accuse 
our Negroes with acts of vengeance as fiendinsh as those of the 
Haitian Negroes? 

Yet, listen: “The Haitian Negroes came originally from the 
same African countries as those brought by the New England 
States and sold to the South. They were identical in race and 
blood and originally of the same moral fiber. Now, if in Haiti they 
were goaded to acts of fiendishness, it was because their white 
masters of a higher intelligence had failed them in kindliness and 
had made no effort to lift them above the level of their primitive, 
pagan superstitions and practices. These super-refined and exquis- 
itely polished Creoles “reaped what they had sown.” 

In 1859, our nation lived in an atmosphere surcharged with 
passion and hatreds. Many people lost their sense of proportions, 
and ignorance of the real circumstances induced some to believe 
that the colored people would welcome an opportunity to betray 
their friends and masters. The effort failed and for logical reasons. 
The Southern people had inherited the system of slavery, but they 
accepted the inheritance with the weight of all the obligations and 
responsibilities that civilization and Christianity impose upon the 
human conscience. 

Time carries us back to sanity, not only cures all ills, but 
restores the bonds of broken friendships and brings into relief 
the true perspective of remote events and reestablishes the sense 
of proportions. There are lessons in multitudes for those who 
observe the pointings of the finger of destiny, but, unfortunately, 
men so often fail to profit from lessons so profound and wise. 
One of the lessons transmitted as the result of John Brown’s ef- 
fort stands out preeminently. It is this : That the character of 


42 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


the Negro, his loyalty and his faithfulness, is a reflection of the 
example set him by “Ole Master” and “Old Miss.” Because of 
the shortcomings of their superiors in Haiti, the Negroes there did 
not scruple to avenge themselves in terrible fashion. But, in the 
South, where they were treated with kindly consideration and 
trained in the eternal verities of Christianity, a feeling of such 
trust and confidence existed between the white and colored that 
when the war began, the soldiers shouldered arms and went to the 
front with full confidence that the women and children were safe 
under the protection of the Negroes who would protect their de- 
fenseless homes and families. The Negroes knew that a bitter 
war was being fought which would vitally affect their destinies, 
yet even this did not blind them to their sense of duty, and they 
served and protected the women and children of the South with 
unwavering loyalty and devotion, qualities which we memorialize 
today. 


We rejoice in the continual progress of the race; we share 
in their pride in the creation of their prosperity, which forms an 
important asset to the wealth of our nation ; we sympathize with 
their aims and ambitions as directed by men of the type of Dr. 
Booker T. Washington and Professor R. R. Moton, and rejoice in 
the accomplishment of such splendid institutes as Tuskegee and 
Hampton. 


But in a more intimate sense and closer to our hearts remains 
the old Negro “Mammy,” who with her humility and sweet deco- 
rum has become a real institution. 


Again I speak from personal experience. The mammy born 
in anti-bellum days, who nursed our children, has never left us. 
She shares our joys and sorrows, and is a trusted confidante in our 
family affairs. She treats my son, a giant of a man, with hair 

streaked with silver, as though he were a boy in rompers, and 

now and then shows his wife and children her greatest treasure, 

the first little shoes which she was first to put on his baby feet. 

You know I feel sorry for a child who has never had a real “Mam- 
my” ! Old and decrepit, unable to do any work, she occupies a 
little rose-covered cottage in our yard, where she will remain un- 
til she is called to her eternal home.

Seventy-two years have passed since that tragedy at Harper’s 
Ferry. Seventy-two years of constructive thought and effort have 
brought us to this glad day in a people’s history. 

“A people sane and great, 

Forged in strong fires, 

In war made one, 

Telling old battles over without hate.” 

Today the Flag of the Union proudly floats above an undi- 
vided and indivisible people; more than one hundred million peo- 
ple turn their eyes where the stars shine in their field of azure, 
more resplendent than a tropical night ; more than a hundred mil- 
lion voices proudly and reverently sing: 

“And star-spangled banner, O long may it wave 

O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave !” 

Our section is true to the national flag, that flag which our 
fathers first lifted to the breezes — to that flag that has never 
known defeat, as true as the truest. That was demonstrated in 
the Spanish-American War, when Fighting Joe Wheeler doffed 
his uniform of gray and, resplendent in blue, led the American 
forces, the sons of the blue and the sons of the gray, in Cuba; 
proven again in the great World War, when the sons of the South, 
true to the spirit of their fathers, served no less courageously, no 
less sacrificially, under the Stars and Stripes on the battle-rent, 
shell-torn fields of France. Yes, 

The old South is true to the Union, 

A World War has written the test; 

But deep in her heart lies another, 

The Holy Grail of her quest. 

While we are true to the Stars and Stripes, it is also true in 
the highest and purest sense that we are loyal to another banner, 
the Stars and Bars. Our love for this flag is like that of a mother 
who slips away noiselessly to a darkened room — opens a drawer 
and takes from its depths the little garments of her sainted child ; 
holds them caressingly in her trembling hands ; her tearful eyes 
bedew them — then she reverently lays them away and, with a sob 
in her heart, turns to meet duties of the day. In pledging our 


44 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


allegiance to the Stars and Stripes, we do not agree to forget this 
other flag, under whose folds marched armies clad in gray whose 
heroic deeds added new honor to American manhood and a brighter 
luster to American fame. 

As a people we are deeply grateful that within our national 
borders all is peace. May gentle Peace, wedded to stalwart Hon- 
or, depart from us no more forever. God hasten the time, by 
prophets sung, when “nation shall rise against nation no more/’ 
nor “man’s inhumanity to man make countless thousands mourn” ; 
when every war horse shall be hitched to a plow, when every spear 
shall become a pruning hook, and every sword shall be converted 
into an implement of peaceful husbandry, causing the earth to 
smile in verdure where once it was drenched in blood. That glad 
day will be the final triumph of the Prince of Peace, when the 
mighty angel shall say: “I have gone up and down through the 
earth, and the earth sitteth still and is at rest. I heard no tumult 
of war, neither noise of battle.” 

Today we dedicate this bowlder in memory of Heyward Shep- 
herd and to the faithful of his race. It is history in stone. It 
commemorates the loyalty, courage, and self-sacrifice of Heyward 
Shepherd and thousands of others of his race who would, like 
him, have suffered death rather than betray their masters or to 
be false to a trust. 

It is a cheap and blatant praise that does not seek to translate 
into the conduct of the present the ideals of the past, and memo- 
rials are meaningless unless we endeavor to express in thought 
and deeds those lofty ideals of fidelity, loyalty, courage, and self- 
sacrifice which we today commemorate in others. 

May this bowlder stand through the coming years as a silent 
challenge to men and women to bring to the service of their coun- 
try and generation a higher measure of responsibility and a deeper 
and truer conception of duty.

A REPLY TO THE CONQUERED BANNER 

By Sir Henry Houghton, Bart., England. 

It will be seen by this that the sympathy of people of other 
lands, and especially our Mother Country, was not altogether on 
one side. To this day great respect is shown those who fought 
on the Southern side, and far more of consideration expressed now 
that we have gone so far away from the prejudice and passion of 
those days. Recently, while in London, I had the privilege of 
being the guest of Lord Kinnaird, a man as well distinguished for 
his Christianity as for his splendid success in business life. An- 
other gentleman present, speaking of the war, turned to me and 
said, “Give me the history of that war” ; to which I replied that it 
might be done in one sentence: “The people of New England 

brought slaves from Africa and traded them to us in the South for 
molasses, and sugar and cotton, and then came and fought us and 
took them away from us.” This seemed to satisfy my questioner, 
and I hope it will not be denied or severely criticised by my reader. 
Amen. 

Gallant nation, foiled by numbers ! 

Say not that your hopes are fled ; 

Keep that glorious flag which slumbers, 

One day to avenge your dead. 

Keep it, widowed, sonless mothers ! 

Keep it, sisters, mourning brothers ! 

Furl it with an iron will; 

Furl it now but keep it still — 

Think not that its work is done. 

Keep it till your children take it, 

Once again to hall and make it, 

All their sires have bled and fought for ; 

All their nobles hearts have sought for — 

Bled and fought for all alone. 

All alone ! ay , shame and story ! 

Millions here deplore the stain ; 

Shame, alas ! for England’s glory, 

Freedom called, and called in vain ! 

Furl that canner sadly, slowly, 

Treat it gently, for ’tis holy; 

Then once more unfurl it gladly — 

Conquered banner ! keep it still !

SAM DAVIS 


(The facts presented below were written by a member of the Virginia 
Clay-Clopton Chapter of the Daughters of the Confederacy, Huntsville, 
Alabama, and preserved in the collections of the Chapter by the Secretary, 

The author failed to sign her name but the facts are well known to history. 

The poem interpreting the spirit of Sam Davis was written by John Trot- 
wood Moore, and read by the author at the unveiling ceremonies of the 
Sam Davis Monument in Pulaski, Tenn.) 

Sam Davis, a young Confederate soldier from Tennessee join- 
ed the army in 1861 as a member of Captain Coleman’s Scouts and 
soon became one of his most trusted men. In September of 1863, 
he with several men were detached to go to Nashville and vicinity 
to ascertain the strength of the Federal forces. Young Davis was 
captured as a spy near Pulaski in November and taken to the 
headquarters of the Federal General Dodge where he was search- 
ed. Papers were found on his person and stitched in his saddle 
containing descriptions of the fortifications at Nashville and other 
points. There was also an exact report of the Federal Army in 
Tennessee. The information was of such a character that General 
Dodge knew the information had been gained from some one in 
his own forces. He tried every means to make Davis tell who 
gave him the information but the boy soldier was firm. His an- 
swer was : “General Dodge, I know the danger of my situation 
and am willing to take the conesquences.” He was tried by court 
martial and condemned to be hung, Friday, November 27, 1863. 
When the sentence was read to him he showed no fear and to the 
end showed himself a hero. The night before the execution he 
wrote his mother a letter bidding her good-bye. 


The gallows was on a hill in full view of the square. Young 
Davis rode to the gallows on his coffin. A few minutes before 
his execution an officer of General Dodge’s staff, Captain Chick- 
asaw, was seen galloping towards the gallows. He jumped from 
his horse and went to Davis and said : “It is not too late yet. Give 
me the name of the traitor and you are a free man.” 


Davis turned upon him and said : “If I had a thousand lives 
I would lose them all before I would betray my friends or the 
confidence of my informer.”

Turning to the Chaplain he gave him a few keepsakes for his 
mother, then said to the provo marshal : “I am ready,” and stepped 
upon the trap. The body of the noble young man was buried in 
Maplewood at Pulaski but a few days later a friend and neighbor, 
John Kennedy and a younger brother, came in a two horse wagon 
and carried the body to his home near Smyrna, Tenn., where he 
had been born in 1842 and where he was buried. He was identi- 
fied by the clothes he wore, a suit of home-spun gray made by his 
mother. The Daughters of the Confederacy of Pulaski have erect- 
ed a beautiful monument to the memory of this gallant young 
Southerner, located in the public square of that city facing his be- 
loved Southland for which he gave his young life.

lished the Tennessee State Department of Archives and History.) 

“Tell me his name and you are free,” 

The General said, while from the tree 
The grim rope dangled threat’ningly. 

The birds ceased singing — happy birds, 

That sang of home and mother — words, 

The sun kissed his cheek — dear sun ; 

It loves a life that’s just begun! 

The very breezes held their breath 
To watch the fight twixt life and death. 

And O, how calm and sweet and free. 

Smiled back the hills of Tennessee! 

Smiled back the hills, as if to say, 

“O, save your life for us to-day.” 

“Tell me his name and you are free,” 

The General said, “and I shall see 
You safe within the rebel line — 

I’d love to save such life as thine.” 

A tear gleamed down the ranks of blue — 

(The bayonets were tipped with dew), 

Across the rugged cheek of war

God’s angels rolled a teary star. 

The boy looked up — ’twas this they heard : 
“And would you have me break my word?” 

A tear stood in the General’s eye ! 

“My boy, I hate to see thee die — 

Give me the traitor’s name and fly !” 

Young Davis smiled, as calm and free 
As he who walked on Galilee : 

“Had I a thousand lives to live, 

Had I a thousand lives to give, 

I’d lose them, nay, I’d gladly die 
Before I’d live one life a lie !” 

He turned — for not a soldier stirred — 
“Your duty men — I gave my word.” 

The hills smiled back a farewell smile, 

The breezes sobbed o’er his hair awhile, 
The birds broke out in glad refrain. 

The sunbeams kissed his cheek again — 
Then, gathering up their blazing bars, 

They shook his name among the stars. 

O Stars, that now his brothers are, 

O Sun, his sire in truth and light, 

Go tell the list’ning worlds afar 
Of him who died for truth and right ! 

For martyr of all martyrs he 
Who dies to save an enemy !

ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


“HOUSTON COUNTY IN THE GREAT BEND OF THE 

TENNESSEE” 

By Oliver D. Street 

(In 1904 the late Judge Oliver D. Street read a paper befor the Ten- 
nessee Valley Historical Society which he later presented to the Alabama 
State Department of Archives and History for permanent preservation. 

This paper is printed in this issue of the Alabama Historical Quarterly 
because of its unique historical value. Judge Street was one of the Trus- 
tees of the Department of Archives and History in its early years and 
contributed much to its growth and to public sentiment in its behalf. This 
“Narrative of the Establishment by the Legislature of Georgia in 1784 
of a new County in the Great Bend of the Tennessee River” brings 
to attention an episode in Alabama history of great interest. Judge 
Street has documented his article with footnotes and substantiated 
from government and other records every statement he has made.) 

In 1784, Georgia was a sovereign and independent common- 
wealth, owing no duty to and claiming to rights against the 
other States, except those scarcely more than moral, prescribed 
by the loose compact known as the Articles of Confederation. 
Indeed, a degree of rivalry, fear and jealousy existed among the 
several States which it is now difficult to understand. Each re- 
garded the other as essentially a foreign nation, as a rival in com- 
merce and as a possible armed enemy in the future. It was, there- 
fore, with much dread and many misgivings that one State wit- 
nessed the territorial expansion, or the increase of population and 
wealth of a neighbor. Upon no point was this mutual jealousy 
and distrust greater than upon that of territorial rights and boun- 
daries. 

At the time of which we write, Georgia claimed all the terri- 
tory between her present boundary and the Mississippi River, and 
as far northward as the southern line of the present State of Ten- 
nessee. This claim was not, however, undisputed. South Caro- 
lina contended with much warmth that a large part of what is 
now North Alabama belonged to her by virtue of the colonial 
charter which defined her limits. It was under such conditions 
that the white man made his first appearance as a factor in the 
history of that part of the Tennessee Valley lying in Alabama. 
It was in 1783, that a company, consisting of William Blount, his 
brothers, John and Thomas, Gen. Joseph Martin, Gen. Griffith

Rutherford, Col. John Sevier, Gov. Richard Caswell, and Col. John 
Donelson, all of North Carolina 1 was formed for the purpose of 
acquiring title to all the lands lying in the present State of Ala- 
bama and north of Tennessee River. Their plan involved the pro- 
curing of a grant of the desired tract from either Georgia or South 
Carolina (they were indifferent which) and its immediate coloni- 
zation and settlement. They calculated with confidence that in 
the obscure character of the rival claims of Georgia and South 
Carolina, the State under whose authority the region was first 
actually occupied would prevail in the dispute, and thus their title 
in either event be made good. Actual occupation has always been 
regarded among nations as the strongest title to new countries ; 
and thus these land adventurers viewed the present case. 2 

But the desired lands were still in the undisturbed occupancy 
of the Indians — not a white settler within their entire limits. The 
first step necessary, therefore, was to extinguish the Indian title. 
This was accomplished by General Martin in the early fall of 1783, 
in consideration of a small quantity of merchandise paid to the 
C’herokees, the aboriginal proprietors of the particular piece of 
ground in question. 

The preliminaries being then disposed of, the speculators pro- 
ceeded to make their contemplated assault upon the Legislature 
of Georgia, then consisting of a single House. On February 7, 
1784, the individuals composing this company presented to the 
Legislature a petition, setting* out that they had “made a purchase 
of lands on the Tennessee” and urging the expediency of laying 
out a new county, “to include all that tract of land lying on the 
Tennessee River which is included by a line drawn from the south 
bank of said river, where the northwest boundary of the State 


1 Several of these gentlemen lived in what is now Tennessee, but then a part 
of North Carolina. 

2 On October 26, 1783, William Blount wrote to Martin, “I am told that a 
certain dispute has arose between the States of Georgia and South Carolina by 
the latter claiming the right to back lands as far West as the Mississippi. Now 
if South Carolina has any back land, the Bend of Tennessee must be a part of it. 
This dispute between the two States will, in my opinion, be very favorable to our 
Designs of obtaining the Georgia Title, or the South Carolina Title and either 
will answer our purpose equally well, for we shall surely settle the Country be- 
fore the Dispute can be determined.” Publications of Southern History Associa- 
tion, (1903) Vol. vii p 264.

crosses, and running west till it crosses said river Tennessee again, 
to the south bank thereof, then up said south bank of said river 
to the beginning.” 

The task of piloting the scheme through the tortuous paths 
of legislation was entrusted to the crafty hands of William Blount. 
The dispute between Georgia and South Carolina, instead of em- 
barrassing the plans of the speculators, was skillfully employed by 
Blount in their favor. It was represented by him that priority of 
settlement would greatly strengthen Georgia’s claim to the 
disputed territory, and that it would probably settle it decisively 
in her favor and would obviate the danger of future armed con- 
tests with South Carolina touching the matter. 

The argument proved convincing and on February 20, 1784, 
the committee to whom this petition was referred reported that 
“after having received all the information they could obtain on 
that subject, they were of the opinion it would be necessary in 
order to prevent future contests, to take measures as soon as may 
be done with propriety, to settle the said tract of country.” They, 
therefore, recommended “that seven commissioners be appointed 
and vested with the powers necessary to ascertain the quantity, 
quality and circumstances of the aforesaid lands, and report the 
same, with their proceedings, to the legislature for their consider- 
ation.” It was further provided that these commissioners might 
issue warrants of survey for not more than one thousand acres to 
any one person and at a price of not less than twelve and one-half 
cents per acre. The surveys, when executed, with the plats of the 
same, were to be returned to the surveyor-general’s office, prelim- 
inary to the issuing of a patent. This report was agreed to, and 
on the following day Lachlin McIntosh, Jr., William Downes, 
Stephen Heard, John Morrell, all of Georgia, and John Donelson, Joseph 
Martin, and John Sevier, all of North Carolina, were appointed such 
commissioners. They were also constituted Justices for said district 
and upon them was conferred the power of appointing militia offi- 
cers who should be commissioned by the Governor. They were 
thus invested with civil and military authority over the Great Bend 
and with the power of disposing of the public domain therein. It 
was to all intents and purposes the establishment of a new coun- 
ty, or district, as it was then called, and was the earliest semblance 
of civil government erected by an English speaking people in the 
present State of Alabama.

The men who were engaged in this enterprise were the most 
prominent of their day in Georgia and North Carolina. McIntosh 
was a brigadier-general of militia, had served under Washington 
in the Revolutionary War and was at the time a member of Con- 
gress. William Blount became subsequently a member of the 
United States Senate and Governor of Tennessee. Martin was a 
noted pioneer, and Indian fighter and Agent. Gen. Rutherford, 
at the opening of the Revolution was a member of the Provincial 
Congress and Council of Safety, and in 1776 was commissioned a 
brigadier-general in the American army. John Sevier was successively a 
Brigadier-general, governor of the ‘‘State of Franklin”, six times 
governor of Tennessee, and three times elected to Congress. Rich- 
ard Caswell was a member of the Colonial Assembly of North 
Carolina, delegate to Congress, governor, major-general in the Rev- 
lution, United States Senator and presiding officer of the Conven- 
tion which ratified the Federal Constitution. John Donelson was 
a noted pioneer, one of the founders of Nashville, and his daughter 
became the wife of President Jackson. Thus we see that the 
beauty and the natural wealth of our loved Tennessee Valley did 
not fail at an early date to appeal to the ablest men of the time. 


Morrell and McIntosh failed or refused to act, and Thomas 
Napier was appointed in the former’s place by the Governor. He 
also failing, the Executive Council appointed Thomas Carr. It does 
not appear that anyone was appointed in McIntosh’s place. So 
the Board that acted appears to have been constituted as follows : 
Thomas Carr, Stephen Heard, William Downes, Joseph Martin, John 
Donelson, and John Sevier. 

In the fall of 1784, a majority of the Board, namely, Heard, 
Martin, Donelson and Sevier, met and determined that in March 
of the following spring the commissioners should assemble at the 
mouth of Elk River and formally organize the new county, and 
grant warrants of survey for lands to be located in the Great Bend. 
They also recommended that William Blount, John Donelson, 
William Downes, John Sevier, Joseph Martin. Charles Robertson, 
Valentine Sevier, Jr., and Stephen Heard be appointed by the 
Legislature of Georgia justices of the peace for the “said district 
of the Tennessee”, which was done on February 22, 1785. 

In the month of March, according to the previous under- 
standing, Col. Donelson with a company of men, including John 


; 54 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


Peyton and David Henry, penetrated a pathless wilderness from 
Nashville (which had been settled only five years previously) to 
the mouth of Elk River, the appointed place of meeting - , expecting 
to meet there the other commissioners. But finding none of them 
there, after tarrying for a brief period, he left five men, among 
them Peyton, with a note to the other commissioners, and return- 
ed to Nashville with the rest of his Company. He was constrained 
to this course because at this time the mouth of Elk River was a 
great resort for unfriendly Indians who came there to trade with 
the French from the Wabash. A few men without horses might 
secret themselves, but it was difficult for his mounted company 
to do so. Their protracted presence would almost surely bring 
about a clash with the Indians, and this he wished above all 
things to avoid at this time. Peyton and his companions waited 
near a week longer, and the other commissioners still not coming, 
they returned to Nashville and reported to Col. Donelson. 

The failure of the other commissioners to attend at the ap- 
pointed time was doubtless due to the advice of Blount. He ex- 
pected to negotiate treaties with the Cherokees and Chickasaws 
in April or May, 1785, which he hoped would facilitate their plans, 
and wrote to the commissioners suggesting a postponement of their 
meeting until after the negotiation of such treaties. 3 The conse- 
quence was that another meeting of the commissioners did not 
occur until in the fall of 1785. In October 1785, Sevier, Downs, 
Heard, Martin, and Carr of the Commissioners met at Jonesbor- 
ough, Tenn., and resolved to proceed at once down the Holston 
and Tennessee Rivers in discharge of the duties committed to 
them. Martin was, however, called away to South Carolina on 
business with the Indians respecting the negotiation of the Cher- 
okee treaty concluded at Hopewell, on Keowee, on November 28, 
1785. Col. Heard, falling sick, was also compelled to quit the 
party, so that three only now remained. These, however, pro- 
ceeded on their way and were joined by Donaldson at Col. Hutch- 
ins’ in Hawkins county. 

Having engaged a considerable number of men to join them 
at the mouth of the French Broad and to accompany them as 
guard upon the promise of 1000 acres of land to each, 4 Carr, Don- 
elson, Downs and Sevier descended the Holston and Tennessee

Rivers to the Chickamauga towns of the Cherokees, just within 
the present limits of Alabama, where they had talks with the In- 
dians and opened a land office for the sale of the lands in the Great 
Bend. The spot where this business was transacted was prob- 
ably at the Long Island town, on Bridgeport island. Thomas 
Carr was appointed Chairman of the Board; William Downes, 
“Entry Taker”; and John Donelson, surveyor. They proceeded 
to issue land warrants to all whom they had employed to accom- 
pany them, and such others as desired to purchase, formally or- 
ganized the new county, named it Houston, and elected Valentine 
Sevier, Jr., as its representative in the Georgia Legislature. Sevier 
was, therefore, the first person chosen to represent any part of the 
State of Alabama in a legislative body. They also issued a land 
warrant to each of the commissioners for 1000 acres 4 5 but none- of 
the warrants issued at this time ever passed to a grant. A com- 
mittee of Congress subsequently decided that they were all in- 
valid, as they no doubt were, on account of the failure of the hold- 
ers to comply with the law under which they were issued. Don- 
elson appointed as deputy surveyors, James M. Lewis, Zacariah 
Cox. and Maj. Isaac Taylor, but no surveys were made until the 
following year. 


6 Beside those already mentioned, warrants were issued as follows :

It had been one of the purposes of this expedition to establish 
a settlement in the Great Bend, but the Indians appearing hostile 
and restless, it was decided to postpone that part of the enterprise 
till spring, when they would return with an increased company. 
Accordingly, after a stay of two weeks, the Board adjourned to 
meet again at the mouth of Elk River on April 1, 1786. It was 
agreed that Lewis, one of the Deputy Surveyors, should meet the 
Board there, while Cox and Taylor should go to run the line be- 
tween Georgia and North Carolina. 6 The importance of the early 
establishment of this line had been strongly urged upon the com- 
missioners by William Blount. 7 

Upon the breaking up of the Board, some of the commission- 
ers returned to their homes, while others went to report their 
proceedings to the legislature of Georgia. All the copies of this 
report, of which at one time there were several, seem to be lost. 
This is greatly to be deplored, as it no doubt set forth with par- 
ticularity all that was then known of this country, the character 
of its soil, topography, climate and inhabitants. It is gathered 
from the records of the legislature, however, that this report show- 
ed that the commissioners had made divers appointments, had sold 
considerable land, had granted an indulgence of three years to the 
purchasers and had taken bonds therefor in a large amount. 

On his way home, Col. Donelson, who appears to have been 
the most active spirit in this enterprise, was unfortunately killed 
by the Indians. The remaining commissioners never met again 
in the Great Bend, but held several meetings within the settled 
limits of Georgia, at which they wound up their business. Valen- 
tine Sevier, Jr., repaired to the place of sitting of the legislature, 
but was refused recognition. In the spring of 1786, however, Cox 
and Taylor executed their commissions to ascertain and mark the 
Northern boundary of Georgia (now Alabama), and Lewis on April 


6 Now the line between Alabama and Tennessee. 

7 On Oct. 26, 1783, Blount wrote Gen. Martin, “A number of people have here 
entered lands which I am sure they know lays without the limits of the State and 
in the Bent within the limits of our purchase. And expect to get grants from 
this State. I hope care will be taken to have the line of this State (i.e. North 
Carolina) well known, that the Persons making surveys without the limits may 
not be aple to plead Ignorance. It would seem to me that every person I have 
seen here (i.e. Hillsborough, N. C.) envied us the Purchase and wished to own a 
Part of the Bent of Tennessee.”

1st, with two other men, Turner Williams and Argalus Jeter, went 
to the mouth of Elk River, the time and place appointed for the 
reassembling of the commissioners, and awaited their coming till 
the 4th, but they not appearing, he returned to Nashville. 

At the ensuing session of the legislature, on February 6, 1786, 
a bill was brought in “for laying out a county on the Tennessee” 
and was read the first time, but appears never to have proceeded 
any further. On the 10th the report of the “commissioners of thv 
district of Tennessee” was read and referred to a committee con- 
sisting of Messrs. Tew, Fort, and C. Crawford. Four days later 
they submitted a report, but its contents can not now be ascer- 
tained. No further steps were taken until July, when Mr. Porter 
introduced a resolution declaring it to be “expedient in order to 
prevent disputes in future to settle the country in the Bend of the 
Tennessee.” The committee to which this resolution was referred, 
reported on August 1st that “by the communications which had 
been made to the committee, it appeared that a number of persons 
from neighboring states were about to make settlement on the 
lands, which, if carried out, would call for the immediate interpo- 
sition of government,” 8 and, therefore, recommended the establish- 
ment of a new county. The House accordingly ordered such a bill 
to be brought in, and on August 7th, Mr. Walton presented a bill 
entitled “An Act for laying out a district in the Bend of the Ten- 
nessee”, which was read the first time. On the next day it was 
read the second time, and on the 12th was read the third time, 
when on motion it was rejected by a vote of 26 to 23. But it was 
expressly resolved that no title should be weakened, or the powers 
of the commissioners impaired by the rejection of said bill, but 
that everything in respect to said Tennessee business should stand 
precisely upon the same footing as if said bill had not been brought 
in. Donelson, the surveyor for the district being dead, it was fur- 
ther resolved that John Linsey, Esq., should stand appointed in 
his place. 


8 The threatened settlement here referred to was doubtless an enterprise at the 
head of which was Col. Wade Hampton, of South Carolina, who had procured land 
warrants from South Carolina and was threatening to locate them on lands in the 
Great Bend and to settle the country. His contention was that there was a strip 
of country several miles wide, belonging to South Carolina, lying between the 
boundaries of Georgia and North Carolina. Zacariah Cox, who, as we have seen, 
accompanied the commissioners in 1785, was in reality an agent of Col. Hampton.

Two days later it was resolved “that each of the commission- 
ers appointed on the Tennessee business, who have actually at- 
tended their duty, should be entitled to five thousand acres of 
land in the district, as a gratuity and full compensation for their 
trouble, and that they might have warrants of survey for the 
same.” Accordingly, on September 22nd following land warrants 
were issued to the commissioners for five thousand acres each, but 
whether any of them were ever located it is uncertain ; certain it 
is that none of them ever passed to a grant. No further legislative 
action seems to have been taken by Georgia in this matter. No 
title to any lands in the Groat Bend was ever perfected under 
these proceedings. The entire enterprise appears to have collapsed 
with the death of Donelson. 9 

It is interesting to speculate upon the consequences which 
might have followed had the three votes by which this bill was 
defeated been cast differently. It would almost certainly have re- 
sulted in the prompt establishment of another strong settlement 
in the wilderness, like those in Kentucky and at Nashville. It 
would have added another chapter of murder and savage treachery 
to the story of Indian warfare. It would have developed other 
backwoods heroes to rival the deeds of Boone, Mansker, Sevier, 
Campbell, and Robertson. It would have hastened the settlement 
of North Alabama nearly a half century. It would have resulted 
in creating a feeling of pride on the part of the new settlement 
for the mother State which might have proved strong enough to 
have kept forever the Great Bend within the confines of the State of 
Georgia — Or they might have thought when Tennessee became a 
State in 1796, that their welfare would be best promoted by uniting 
their fortunes with hers. It is therefore easily within the range 
of possibilities that had a new county been established at that

representatives were several times before Congress, and it is from the committee

time in the Great Bend, there would have been no State of Ala- 
bama, or if so, that her boundaries would have been greatly dif- 
ferent from what they are. 

This was by no menas the last attempt by private parties to 
obtain the title to the lands embraced in the Alabama portion of 
the Tennessee Valley. Two far more serious attempts made in 
1789 and 1795, became known as the “Yazoo Frauds”. In fact, the 
last was successful, for the Supreme Court of the United States 
in 1880 decided that a grant made by the Georgia Legislature in 
1795 to “The Tennessee Company” was valid and passed an ir- 
revocable legal title to the company, notwithstanding its passage 
was secured by bribery. The strong military arm of the United 
States prevented all that part of North Alabama “from the Ten- 
nessee line extending south to latitude 34° 10" north”, and from 
Bear Creek on its western boundary, running east one hundred anci 
twenty miles”, from passing into private hands at the inconse- 
quential price of two and a quarter cents per acre. Several of the 
parties concerned in the movement for the establishment of Hous- 
ton County were also interested in these two subsequent enter- 
prises. Thus we see that at a time when the entire western country 
abounded in unoccupied lands of magnificent fertility and extent, 
none seems to have proven quite so strong an attraction to the 
alert land speculators as our own Tennessee Valley.

CHANGING ALABAMA 


By Mary S. Butler 


(Miss Butler is a teacher in the public schools of Selma, a former 
President of the Alabama Branch, National League of American Pen 
Women, has written numerous school plays and produced historical pa- 
geants in Selma and elsewhere.) 

Global war has brought drastic changes to every state in the 
Union, but perhaps none has felt it any more than Alabama. 
From the former sleepy shores of the Gulf, where now the riveters 
and welders in the ship-yards make the Heavens ring, to the bust- 
ling Muscle Shoals on the blue Tennessee, there is an ever-moving 
current of change sweeping the state. 

Sinister changes? Not altogether, Let us look at some of 
them. 

Alabama's population in 1940 was 2,832,248, showing an in- 
crease of 186,713 since 1930. Alabama has grown in many ways, 
but perhaps the greatest growth has not been in population, but 
in its economic and social outlook. War has shown to the rest 
of the world our splendid possibilities. Is it any wonder that 
Mobile, with its naturally deep harbor and its proximity to the 
Panama Canal,, was chosen as the site of one of the government’s 
largest ship-yards? Is it surprising that Childersburg, only one 
hundred miles from the huge nitrate supply of the Tennessee Val- 
ley, is turning out millions of tons of gun-powder and other am- 
munition? Birmingham, in the midst of its iron, coal, and lime, 
is one of the greatest steel producers in the nation. Among the 
valuable mineral resources which the War has enhanced in value 
is Alabama’s vast deposits of bauxite, from which aluminum is 
made, sulphur, lead, zinc, and bituminous coal. Our big pine for- 
ests have contributed magnificently to the nation’s supply of lum- 
ber, and our Alabama cotton is going into millions of war-time 
products. 

But let us take a look at the social side of all this war-time 
prosperity which has come to our state. Ask any citizen of Mont- 
gomery, Selma, Anniston, Dothan, or any Alabama city in which 
there is located an Army air-field or post, if life in his community 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 




has changed, and he will emphatically reply, “Yes.” 


First, there is the crowded condition of homes, schools, stores, 
eating-places, theaters, buses, trains and street-cars. Families are 
living in such congested situations that there is little privacy ; 
children have no place to play, and the nerve strain and irritability 
which is a concomitant is reflected in the faces of people on the 
streets. Gone is the day of leisure, when neighbors all knew each 
other and took an interest in every small occurrence in the town. 
The days of the placid, peaceful flow of uneventful life seem to be 
a dream of the past. 


Mothers, who have never left their homes to earn a penny, 
have gone to work, lured by the fantastic prices paid for labor, 
leaving their children to Negro nurses or day nurseries. Juvenile 
delinquency is an attendant evil, — but this short article is no proper 
vehicle for this subject, which is a volume in itself. Alabama is 
having her share of trouble with her children and youth, — which 
leads to the next great change in our state, — the condition of our 
schools. 


Jane Addams, widely known and loved social worker, once 
said, “America’s future will be determined by its homes and schools. 
The child becomes what it is taught; hence we must watch what 
we teach it and how we live before it.” Alabama teachers, along 
with those of all the states in the Union, are leaving their school- 
rooms by the thousands, literally, and last year Alabama lost 3,600 
of hers. This means that our schools are rapidly losing ground, 
and our most precious crop, our children, are being taught by any- 
one that a harried superintendent can pick up. Alabama, with 2.2 
percent of the nation’s population, has only 1.1 percent of the na- 
tion’s wealth. This means that there is not enough money for 
schools, and that unless the federal government, which is already 
feeding thousands of our school children, comes to our aid, Ala- 
bama will not have enough teachers to man her schools. Teachers 
in this state received a salary increase of nineteen cents a day last 
fall, while the cost of living went up 26 percent in the same season. 
Last September there were 221 vacant schoolrooms, in spite of the 
3,100 emergency certificates granted. Alabama cannot afford to 
let her schools drop below pre-war levels. The problems of a 
post-war world must be settled by our youth and children of today,

and they will need more and better educations than they are re- 
ceiving now. 


But changes in our educational set-up are not greater than 
changes in other phases of our state life. Money is pouring into 
business, but there seems little thought g'iven to the post-war de- 
pression which is as sure to follow as night follows day. Governor 
Sparks has appointed a commission to study the problems which 
will arise, particularly those of unemployment. There is hope thar 
our industries can convert to peace-time work, but can even a frac- 
tion of the thousands of war workers find work in Alabama afte r 
the war? Positively not. In our industrial cities of Birmingham. 
Gadsden, Anniston, Mobile and Childersburg, there must be two 
or three hundred thousand workers. Alabama, which is primarily 
an agricultural state, cannot absorb these industrial workers. There 
are not enough factories in this state to employ one-hundredth 01 
them. 


The war-time industries which have been introduced into the 
state have caused the greatest change in the lives of the people. 
Farm boys who have earned only a dollar a day at most are earn- 
ing ten; Negroes who were paid twenty-five cents an hour are 
drawing fabulous wages. Women, both white and black, are mak 
ing more money than they have ever imagined. What effect ha e 
this had upon the population? Farms and dairies abandoned, neve'* 
to be worked again ; homes wrecked by crowded conditions and 
juvenile delinquency; Alabama’s colored labor impudent and dis- 
contented, probably never willing to return to pre-war wages. For 
Alabama is bound to grow away from her agricultural tradition-? 
and become more and more an industrial state. 

Tabor trouble has already raised its ugly head in this state 
When one of our Congressmen dared to vote for the Smith-Con 
nally Bill, which would regulate the strike menace, all labor union 
members were ordered by their national bosses to vote agains" 
this honest man. This insidious venom was contested in the May 
primaries recently; if Tabor had won out in this contest, the’" 
Alabama would have bidden farewell forever to her age-old tradi 
tions. 


These afore-mentioned changes are not more drastic than the 
other political changes one encounters. Alabama has long been 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


63 


considered one of the staunchest supporters of the “Solid South’’. 
The Democratic Party in Alabama, which has produced great lead- 
ers like Oscar Underwood, the Bankheads, Thomas Kilby, B. B. 
Comer and dozens of others, has seen the time come when it is 
seriously considering pulling out of the “Solid South”, to bring an 
end to the New Deal, and to restore to power the old American 
spirit of free enterprise. The stiff fight put up in Congress by our 
Senator John Bankhead against Farm Subsidies is but a straw in 
thp wind, showing how Alabama is feeling about national politics. 

However, not all the changes in Alabama are bad ones. We 
have seen our great plantations cut into smaller farms ; our tenant 
farmers have improved their condition and are getting away from 
the one-crop system. Alabama is raising fine herds of dairy cattle 
and blooded horses. Cotton is no longer King in this state. We 
have reaped many benefits in a financial way from this terrible 
war. Our squalid Negro tenements in many cities have been re- 
placed by neat government apartments ; the general condition of 
our Negroes has been improved ; our poor whites have had money 
to buy luxuries, and all over Alabama may be seen evidences of 
her great wealth. 

Changes, — social, economic, educational, — yes, even cultural, 
mark the present history of Alabama. Change may be helpful ; 
only stagnation means death. If Alabama can grasp her opportun- 
ity and rise on this upsurge of prosperity, her future may be very 
bright. If she can turn her powder-mills into plastic factories, her 
steel into automobiles, her warships into carriers of world com- 
merce, she will be well on her way to surmounting a world de- 
pression after the War. 

Yes, a changing Alabama has great possibilities, if her citizen- 
ship is educated and enlightened. If a state can pour billions into 
a war effort, she can surely pour millions into better schools, good 
roads, libraries, hospitals, and welfare institutions for her citizens 
in peace times. Wake up, Alabama, and grasp your opportunity!

ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


DEMOCRATIC PARTY REGULATIONS EXPLAINED 

By Gessner T. McCorvey, Chairman 
State Democratic Executive Committee 

(It is the policy of the Alabama Historical Quarterly to carry in each 
issue at least one article of current historical importance. This issue con- 
tains a letter to the Editor of the Mobile Press Register by Mr. McCorvey 
in response to inquiries made of the Chairman of the Executive Committe 
concerning the Party rules relating to elections in the State of Alabama. 
This particular item was chosen for presentation herewith because of the 
political situation not only in Alabama but throughout the nation respecting 
the voters rights and privileges, his moral obligations as an elector and 
especially the rules of the Democratic Party in this State during the 
/ecent campaign for National. State and local offices.) 

September 2nd, 1944. 


To 

The Editor of the Mobile Press Register, 

Mobile, Alabama. 

Dear Sir : — 

Replying to your several inquiries submitted to me in writing, 
relative to prospective action to be taken by the State Democratic 
Executive Committee of Alabama, my forecasts as to the General 
Election, etc., I must state that I can only answer your inquiries 
for myself, and although I have been honored by my fellow mem- 
bers on our State Committee with the Chairmanship of our Com- 
mittee, I have no authority to speak for or bind any other mem- 
ber of our Committee. However, I have no hesitancy in stating 
what my own, personal, views are, and what action, in my opinion, 
our Party should take. With this understanding I will answer 
your several inquiries as follows : 

1. As to what position the State Democratic Executive Com- 
mittee will take towards Democrats who voted in our Democratic 
Primaries and then vote the Republican ticket in the General Elec- 
tion in November, in my opinion our State Executive Committee 
will do in the future as it has done in the past, and invite all white 
electors to return to our Party and become members of the Demo- 
cratic Party, although I feel confident that our State Executive 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


65 


Committee will bar as candidates in our next Democratic Primary 
Elections any electors who fight the nominees of our Party in the 
General Election of 1944. May I add that for many years our 
Party has provided different qualifications for voters and for can- 
didates. We invite all white electors to become members of our 
Party and permit them to vote, but when it comes to permitting 
an elector to be a candidate in our Democratic Primaries, then we 
require such prospective candidate to take an oath to the effect 
that he did not vote a Republican ticket or any ticket other than 
the Democratic ticket in the last General Election, and further 
that he did not openly and publicly oppose the election of the 
nominees of the Democratic Party, or any of them. I think our 
State Executive Committee will follow this course in the future. 

2. In answer to your inquiry as to whether or not the State 
Democratic Executive Committee will read out of the Party any 
voter who participated in our Democratic Primaries and who failed 
to vote, at all, in the General Election, I will state that this inquiry 
is covered in my answer to your first question. 

3. Replying to your inquiry as to whether or not I, as Chair- 
man, fear a wide-spread bolt in the November election, I beg to 
advise that I do not expect any such bolt. There will, of course, 
be some Democrats who will not vote in the General Election in 
November, and a comparatively few who will “kick over the 
traces” and vote the Republican ticket, but I don’t believe that 
any very substantial number of the thoughtful men and women 
of our State who participated in our Democratic Primary and de- 
liberately cast a ballot on which was written a pledge to support 
all the nominees of that Primary, will violate this pledge with 
impunity. On every ballot cast in our Primary Election, and on 
every voting machine used in that Primary, there was plainly 
written this pledge : 

“By casting this ballot I do pledge myself to abide by the 
result of this primary election and to aid and support all 
the nominees thereof in the ensuing General Election.” 

Sections 350 and 352 of Title 17 of the Alabama Code makes it 
mandatory that this pledge be placed on each ballot cast. A great 
many Democrats firmly believe that there would have been little, 
if any, thought of Roosevelt for a fourth term except for the war 


66 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


conditions. Many thoughtful citizens who were never admirers 
of President Roosevelt, and who thought that the two-term tra- 
dition should be maintained, are voting for Mr. Roosevelt this 
time because they very sincerely feel that it would be a serious 
mistake for the American people to repudiate President Roosevelt 
during the pendency of the war which is being so magnificently, 
splendidly, effectively and successfully prosecuted, without the 
slightest hint from the President’s most bitter enemies that he, 
as Commander in Chief, has been guilty of any political interfer- 
ence in its prosecution. I think the argument a sound one, that if 
the American people should repudiate Roosevelt, and if the Eng- 
lish people should repudiate Churchill, then our enemies such as 
Hitler, Goebels, Goering and Himmler, and the Japanese gang' of 
war lords in control of that country, could go before their people 
with some semblance of sincerity and claim that neither the Amer- 
ican people nor the British people were behind “those war mongers 
Roosevelt and Churchill A Such propaganda on the part of the lead- 
ers of our enemies would undoubtedly prolong the war and cost 
countless thousands of additional casualties among our boys. While 
our enemies are now doing all that they can, and we now have 
them with their backs to the wall, yet, I don’t think there is any 
doubt that they would hold out much longer, and resist more 
strongly, if they sincerely thought that the people of our country 
and the people of England were not whole-heartedly behind our 
leaders in the prosecution of this war. This, alone, in my opin- 
ion, makes it all important that the Democratic Party be returned 
to power. 


In my opinion the great majority of the Democrats in Ala- 
bama and throughout the South are going to take the position 
that we owe our allegiance to the Democratic Party and we will 
faithfully support its nominees. I think only a very few are going 
“to take a walk”. I believe that the Southern people are finally 
waking up to the fact that by the South presenting a united front 
at our National Conventions we can regain in the councils of our 
Party the prestige which we formerly enjoyed. We of the South 
undoubtedly brought about the defeat of Henry Wallace as our 
Vice-Presidential nominee, and no man more unfriendly to the 
South could possibly have been nominated than Wallace. Fur- 
thermore, at our recent Chicago Convention our Southern Dele- 
gates succeeded in having two planks placed in our platform which 
I consider a victory for our section. These planks were as follows : 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


67 


“We favor Federal aid to education administered by the 
States without interference by the Federal Government.” 

We have been fearful that if the Federal aid to education was 
administered by the Federal Government, the first requirement 
would be the abolition of our segregation laws, just as the Federal 
Government has required the doing away with segregation laws 
in connection with certain Federal contracts, etc. 

The other plank in our platform which should be particularly 
helpful to the South is the plank reading as follows : 

“We favor nondiscriininatory transportation charges and 
declare for the early correction of inequalities in such 
charges. ” 

Anyone who has studied the transporation freight structure under 
which the South has been struggling since the Civil War, fully 
appreciates the tremendous disadvantage under which Southern 
Industry has had to operate. I firmly believe that by the proper 
cooperation between our Southern Delegates we can in the future 
get our Party to take many more steps toward aiding our section. 

Most of the thoughtful men and women of Alabama who were 
unwilling to support the nominees of the Democratic Primaries, 
unless these nominees should turn out to be candidates they were 
willing to support in the General Election, stayed out of our Pri- 
maries so as to be free to vote the Republican ticket or an Inde- 
pendent ticket without violating their pledge. No man or woman 
had any right or any business participating in our Democratic 
Primary without being bound by the conditions we imposed when 
inviting them to become a member of our Party. They could 
stay out of our Primary and then with a clear conscience vote as 
they pleased in the General Election. 

4. In reply to your inquiry as to what constitutes the princi- 
pal objection in the South to the re-election of the Democratic 
ticket, I will state that in my opinion the principal objection would 
be the manner in which the present administration has handled 
the racial issue. However, just read the Republican platform with 
its advocacy of a permanent Fair Employment Practice Commis- 
sion, the abolition of our poll tax laws, the doing away with all of 


68 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


our segregation statutes, etc., and then tell me what in the name 
of common sense these objectors think or hope they can accom- 
plish on this racial proposition by stringing along with our Re- 
publican friends. Many Northern people, both Democrats and 
Republicans, advocate the doing away with our segregation laws 
and other regulations which we of the South know to be abso- 
lutely essential to the well-being of both races, and while these 
folks think that they are helping out our colored friends, yet, as a 
matter of fact, we all know that they are only making living con- 
ditions in the South more cliff ciult and more unsatisfactory for 
both races. Ours is the only section of the world where two en- 
tirely different races have been able to live together side by side 
in great numbers in peace and harmony for many generations, 
and if we are just let alone we will continue to have nothing but 
the best of relations between the two races. I recently read a 
statement from what I considered a reliable source, that more ne- 
groes were killed in the horrible race riot in Chicago a few years 
ago than were killed in all of the lynchings which have taken place 
in all of the Southern States during the three-quarters of a cen- 
tury since the Civil War ended, and yet some of these Northern 
people seem to think that they know better than the Southern 
people, — both white and black, — how we can best get along and 
live together. They are simply ill-advised, ignorant meddlers who 
know absolutely nothing about the problems they are trying to 
handle with totally unworkable theories. I wish all of them could 
see and realize how nicely and satisfactorily the two races get 
along together when they just leave us alone. No right-thinking 
Southern white man or white woman is going to be unfair or un- 
just to his colored neighbors, and all that we ask of these people 
in other sections of the country is to let us live in peace and har- 
mony and to stop meddling and interfering with a proposition that 
they know absolutely nothing about. No matter how good their 
intentions may be, they are doing nothing but harm when they 
undertake to trample under foot the traditions and segregation 
practices which time has proven to be the only proper method of 
handling our proposition. 


5. Replying to your inquiry as to whether or not the State 
Committee has any means of checking on how Democrats who 
voted in the Primary vote in the General Election, I beg to ad- 
vise that no method of making such a check is afforded. In fact, 
we have rather severe criminal statutes controlling in such cases 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


69 


where an effort is made. to see how an elector voted, except in the 
case of a contest. In event the State Executive Committee of our 
Party wished to punish any Democrat who voted for the Repub- 
lican ticket in the General Election, the only way that a check of 
this kind could be made would be to require that before any sus- 
pected elector could be permitted to vote in our next Prmary Elec- 
tion, such elector would first have to make affidavit as to whether 
or not he supported the Democratic ticket in the preceding General 
Election. As above stated, we have only required such an affidavit 
as to candidates and have not applied such a harsh rule to electors, 
as it has been our desire to keep in the Democratic Party all quali- 
fied white electors. 


6. I think if the National Administration continues to meddle 
with our racial problems in the South that Governor Sparks is 
correct in taking the position that we will be caused much grief 
and I can conceive that matters could get to the point where there 
would be danger of the South abandoning its traditional allegiance 
to the Democratic Party. However, I don’t think we have as yet 
come to this point. I believe that with a better understanding of 
conditions in our section, the Democrats in other sections will be- 
gin to realize that in their efforts to do away with our segregation 
laws they are doing nothing but harm, and are not being helpful 
to anyone. As the situation appears to me, those of us who en- 
tertain the views which we hold as to the absolute necessity of our 
segregation statutes would have nowhere to go if we wished to 
abandon the Democratic Party. We could certainly hope for no 
relief along these lines from the Republican Party. Even a glance 
at the very radical racial platform adopted by the Republican 
Party shows conclusively that we have nothing to expect from 
that source. I have never thought that I could get anywhere 
trying “to reform the other fellow’s party” , but am firmly convinced 
that I can accomplish far more trying to reform my own party, 
where I certainly would have much more weight and influence 
than if I went over into the enemy’s camp and tried to tell them 
how to run things. I don’t think that the third party agitation 
will get anywhere. For many years we have had third parties to 
flash on the political scene from time to time, but I don’t think 
any of them survived more than one election. Personally, I be- 
lieve strongly in the two-party system which gives a sufficient 
check to prevent wholesale abuses. We certainly would not wish 
to follow in the foot-steps of some of our Republics to the South, 


70 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


where they have six or eight different Parties. Such a situation 
brings about untold unrest and lack of stability in Government, 
and in my opinion the thing for the people of the South to do is to 
stand by the Democratic Party, give it our whole-hearted support 
and allegiance, go to our Democratic National Conventions and 
unite in a manner that we have never united before, and insist 
upon and demand that redress which we feel we are entitled to 
from our own Party. There is no doubt in my mind but that Ala- 
bama will go overwhelmingly Democratic in November. With 
all of the fight which was made on Roosevelt by the Wilkie people 
in 1940, here in Mobile County the Democratic ticket swept Mo- 
bile County by a vote of 11,477 for Roosevelt to 1,890 for Wilkie, 
a majority of more than six to one for the Democratic ticket. The 
State as a whole did almost as well by the Democratic Party, the 
vote throughout the entire State being 250,726 for Roosevelt against 
42,184 for Wilkie. 

Of course, much has been done by our Party that I do not 
approve of, but I believe in doing my fighting zvithin my party, and not 
without it. I very earnestly and very sincerely believe that if the 
Southern people will unite and present a solid front at our National 
Conventions, as I had hoped they would do at our last Convention, 
we can bring about a greatly changed situation in the treatment 
accorded to us by our National Administration. We can certainly 
expect nothing from the Republican Party in return for our having 
voted against them for three-quarters of a century, whereas the 
Democratic Party owes us an everlasting debt of gratitude as we 
have been the back-bone of that party for several generations and 
have really prevented it, on several occasions, from passing into 
oblivion. With united effort I feel confident we can remedy many 
of the matters which are now giving us trouble. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GESSNER T. McCORVEY, 

Chairman, 

State Democratic Executive Committee of Alabama.

A HISTORY OF THE OLD FRENCH GUN OF DEMOPOLIS 

By Bessie Patterson Wilburn 


(One of the most interesting rooms in the World War Memorial Build- 
ing is that one holding mementoes of Alabama’s French contacts. Our 
State was first explored by the Spanish under DeSoto in 1540. In 1699 
during the reign of Louis XIV the Gulf Coast was settled by a French 
colony led by two French Canadian brothers, Pierre LeMoyne, Sieur Iber- 
ville and John Baptist LeMoyne, Sieur Beinville. The next interesting 
episode connected with our contacts was the settlement of Demopolis by 
the Vine and Olive Colony in 1818, follows of Napoleon Bonaparte who 
fled from France after his fall to escape death and imprisonment. Another 
interesting episode was the visit of General LaFayette in 1825. The walls 
of this French Room are lined with beautiful paintings portraying scenes 
of the settlement of Demopolis by the Vine and Olive Colony presented 
to the State by Thomas W. Martin. In the glass cabinets in the room 
are some of the beautiful white satin dresses worn by women who came 
with their husbands to Demopolis. From time to time descendants of these 
Colonists present items they have inherited for the collection. Very recently 
a quaint old gun was placed in the French collection by Mrs. Bessie Pat- 
terson Wilburn. The following article by Mrs. Wilburn gives the history 
of the gun.) 

Of the number of the exiled Bonapartists who settled Demop- 
olis in the Alabama Canebrake, the leader, and easily the most 
distinguished of the group, was Count Charles Lefebvre-Desnou- 
ettes, a warm personal friend as well as favorite general of Napo- 
leon Bonapart. He was also a family connection of Napoleon’s 
as the latter had used his influence to wed his cousin, the sister of 
the Paris banker La Fitte (who helped finance Napoleon’s cam- 
paigns) to the Count Desnouettes. 

The Count was perhaps as highly esteemed by Napoleon as 
any of his officers, as was evidenced by his many acts of personal 
favor. On the long and fatiguing march to Russia and the dis- 
astrous retreat from Moscow the beloved Desnouettes was ever 
the chosen general to ride in the personal carriage with his im- 
perial master. General Desnouettes was aid-de-camp to Bona- 
part at the battle of Saragossa. For his conspicuous gallantry at 
Austerlitz he was made a commander of the Legion of Honor. 
In fact so much was Napoleon attached to Desnouettes that when 
forced to abdicate the throne and depart for Elba, while address- 
ing his sorrowful and weeping officer Fontainebleau, the deposed 


72 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 



Lady’s gun given by Countess Desnouettes to her husband, Count Charles 
Lefebvre-Desnouettes, when he left France with the Vine and Olive Colony which 
settled Demopolis, Ala., in 1818. This gun was made by Morizeau, of Paris. 
When Gen. Desnouettes left Alabama to return to Europe he sold his houshold 
effects and gave many parting gifts to members of the Colony. This gun was 
purchased by Nathan Lipscomb, a native of South Carolina and good friend of 
Desnouettes and it afterwards became the property of his daughter, Elizabeth 
Lipscomb Stewart who later gave it to her granddaughter, Bessie Patterson, now 
Mrs. H. H. Wilburn, of Demopolis. 

Emperor said, “I cannot take leave of you all, but will embrace ten, 
Desnouettes in behalf of all.” Napoleon, with tears dimming his 
eyes, encircled the General in his arms, while Desnouettes, entirely 
unarmed, wept aloud. 

The Countess Desnouettes did not accompany her husband 
into exile after Napoleon’s downfall; she intended, however, to 
later join the County in the wilds of North America, where the 
banished French would find a refuge from the wrath of the Bour- 
bons. So, on General Desnouettes’ departure from France, his 
wife entrusted him with the care of a very valuable gun that had 
been made in Paris for her, the Countess thinking at the time, 
that she would shortly be with her husband in America, where 
she would have need of the gun as protection from Indians and 
the wild beasts of the American forest. 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944

This “lady’s gun” was very handsome with its hand carved 
fruit wood stock and heavy padding covered with a beautiful soft 
leather. The bushing was encrusted with gold, and the long single 
barrel bore the words : MORIZBAU , Paris, doubtless the maker’s mark. 

The Countess was never to use this splendid firearm in Ala- 
bama, however, for various circumstances having prevented her 
from joining Desnouettes, she evoked the aid of her influential 
family in obtaining a pardon, and permission for her distinguished 
husband’s return to the Continent. She was successful, and Des- 
nouettes, having sold his plantation and selling and giving to 
friends his household effects, bid farewell to his friends in Ala- 
bama and set sail — not for his beloved France — but for Belgium 
where the Bourbons had granted permission for the Desnouettes 
family to reside. But this illustrious fugitive was never to See 
again his native France ; for his ship, the ill-fated “Albion”, foun- 
dered within sight of the Irish Shore and Desnouettes and all on 
board perished. 

In later years a monument to the memory of Count Charles 
Lefbvre-Desnouettes was erected by the French at St. Ardresse 
near E’Havre, France. 

Among the goods sold by General Desnouettes on leaving De- 
mopolis was the Paris gun that he had brought from France for 
the Countess. The gun was purchased by Nathan Lipscomb, a 
native South Carolinian and good friend of Desnouettes. 

Nathan and his brother William Lipscomb migrated from Ab- 
beville District, South Carolina, prior to April 9, 1817, to join their 
brother Abner Smith Lipscomb at the old Spanish Fort of St. 
Stephens, where the latter had settled in the Mississippi Territory 
in 1811, six years before St. Stephens was to become the provision- 
al Capital of Alabama Territory. Abner Lipscomb, who had stud- 
ied law in the office of John Bowie and of John C. Calhoun, the 
great statesman, in Abbeville District, South Carolina, entered 
politics and while a member of one of the 1818 meetings of the 
Alabama Territorial Legislature proposed the name of “Marengo” 
— in honor of Napoleon’s victory at Marengo in 1800 — for the new 
county that had been settled on the “White Bluff” of the T'ombig- 
bee River by the French Emigrants the year before. These Exil- 
ists had bestowed the Greek word “Demopolis” upon their 


74 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


town ; but when the survey was made it was found that 
the ? ‘City of the People” was outside of the French grant and the 
settlers were forced to remove a short distance eastward where a 
new town was begun and was called Aigleville. In this town Gen- 
eral Desnouettes built a log cabin which was his “Sanctuary”, 
and in it he exhibited a collection of swords and pistols which he 
had taken in battle in Europe. These firearms were arranged 
around the base of a bronze bust of Napoleon ; and the rough log 
walls of the interior of the Sanctuary were draped with the beloved 
flags of France. 

Mr. Jesse Whitfield of Demopolis made a survey in recent 
years of the old Aigleville section, and presented me with a map 
showing the exact location of the Desnouettes cabin. It has been 
the desire of my heart for many years that this spot be preserved 
by a marker. 

Abner S. Lipscomb soon became the first Chief Justice of the 
State of Alabama and left St. Stephens. Nathan Lipscomb, who 
operated the first saw mill in south Alabama, near Bashi, Clarke 
County, and across the Tombigbee River from St. Stephens, soon 
sold his holdings when Murrell’s gang began to terrorize that sec- 
tion, and with his brother William brought their families to Ma- 
rengo County. 

Drinking water was very scarce in the black lime land surround- 
ing Demopolis, so both of the Lipscomb brothers sought and found 
abundant flowing springs a few miles south of Demopolis where 
the sand elevations began to out-crop. Each of the brothers built 
large substantial houses (which are still standing) near the springs 
they had discovered only a few miles apart. 

Incidentally, Nathan had live silk cocoons and slips of the mul- 
berry tree sent from South Carolina to his plantation, but for some 
reason the silk growing experiment was a failure. This species of 
mulberry is yet found growing in the Demopolis section. 

Nathan Lipscomb was residing in his home near his spring 
when Count Desnouettes left Demopolis, and at the sale of the 
General’s effects bought the gun which had been brought to Amer- 
ica for Countess Desnouettes. The story of the gun Nathan learn- 
ed from the Count. A mahogany candlestick was presented to 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


75 


him by Desnouettes at the same time. The fate of the candlestick 
is unknown; but the gun Nathan presented to his wife, the former 
Elizabeth Merriwether of South Carolina, with instructions to shoot 
on sight — not Indians — but the deer that came in increasing num- 
bers to the pool of water below the spring, where they drank with 
the cattle in the evenings. There is, however, no tradition that 
Elizabeth Lipscomb ever killed a deer with the beautiful French 
gun! 

The gun became the property of Nathan and Elizabeth’s 
daughter, Elizabeth Lipscomb Stewart. It stayed for many years 
in an attic while children pried off the gold plate of the bushing, 
and rats and mice played havoc with the padding, and rust cor- 
roded the barrell. 

Mrs. Stewart at length gave the gun to her young grand- 
daughter, Bessie Patterson, now Mrs. H. H. Wilburn, of Demopo- 
lis ; she related the history of the gun as it has been recorded in 
this article. Elizabeth Stewart also gave her granddaughter in- 
structions that the gun must remain always in the family. 

It is now being loaned to the Alabama Department of Ar- 
chives and History with reservation that it may be withdrawn 
upon request of Mrs. Wilburn or her descendants. 

One of my earliest memories was hearing the story of the 
French settlement of Demopolis told by my Grandmother, Eliza- 
beth Lipscomb Stewart; as I grew older I read every printed ac- 
count of the Marengo colony I could find. 

For the history of Count Lefebvre-Desnouettes as given in the 
above article, I used the facts as told by J. W. Beeson in the “De- 
mopolis Express” of 1895, and “French Military Adventure in Ala- 
bama” by Thomas Martin. Other facts and dates are taken from 
old Lipscomb files, and family Bibles, Alabama Historical Quar- 
terly, Summer Issue 1930, and data given me by my Grandmother 
Elizabeth Lipscomb Stewart.

CHAMBERS COUNTY, ALABAMA 

By Anne Elisabeth Newman 


(The Alabama Historical Quarterly has been carrying a series of ar- 
ticles on “The Oldest Church in my County.” These articles were pre- 
pared by their authors in various parts of the State at the request of the 
Editor of this magazine and have proven of great interest not only locally 
but very generally because in some cases the list of interments in the 
churchyard of the old community have been included in the article. 
There is a great disposition on the part of our people to trace their an- 
cestry where records can be found. Many of the old headstones in Ala- 
bama cemeteries carry records even of Revolutionary soldiers who came 
to Alabama with their families in our pioneer period. The Department of 
Archives and History has a list of all Revolutionary soldiers buried in this 
State and it is found that at least 600 Revolutionary heroes are buried 
within the borders of Alabama. The Daughters of the American Revo- 
lution have marked a number of graves and are very active in assembling 
information about them.) 

“For none of us liveth to himself and no man dieth to him- 
self.” This verse from Romans 14:7 was the f ext of the sermon 
preached by Reverend Francis Calloway on April 24, 1839 to a lit- 
tle group of worshippers gathered in a home aboiU two miles 
north of what is now Rock Springs Church. After the sermon 
Brethren William Lacy and Francis Calloway, the two ministers 
present, formed a presbytery and asked Brother Britton Stamps 
to act as clerk. They organized a church consisting of the follow- 
ing charter members: Richard B. Head, Andrew Patterson, Sarah 
Youngblood, James Neighbors, Ruth Lindsey, Abigail Lindsey, 
Abner Webb, Martha McClure, Sarah Lindsey, Elizabeth Head, 
Clarry Lindsey, and Sarah Buckalew. After the organization 
Brother William Lacy and his wife joined by letter, and a month 
later he was called to be the first pastor. 

The church was named Mount Paran at first, but on July 24, 
1841, its name became Rock Springs, for a building had been erected 
about half a mile southeast of the present site, near a spring issu- 
ing from a rock. Here nature had prepared an ideal setting for a 
baptismal scene of reverence and beauty, as people stood about 
the encircling hillsides or sat upon the rocks and witnessed the 
ordinance in the pool below.

-In 1850 the church began worship in its new building up on 
the road at the present location. On January 17, 1857 Henry M. 
Ford and wife Sarah Ann, for the sum of fifty-two dollars sold 
sixteen acres of land to Rock Springs Church, which land still 
provides an ever-enlarging cemetery and the surrounding woods. 
The deacons representing the church at the time of the transaction 
were: James Anderson, Senior, William Davis, Abner Webb, Sam- 
uel Newman, and Philip S. Milford. In 1880 a building committee 
reported carefully detailed specifications for a new building, which 
was finished and occupied in 1881. Mr. Lawrence McRae had 
charge of the erection of the building and carried out his respon- 
sibility scrupulously. Old minutes record the cost of material, 
labor, etc., to have been $1326.86. This building is the house of 
worship used to-day. 

The split between the Missionary and Anti-Missionary Bap- 
tists occurred December 26, 1840. After long consideration of the 
matter of foot-washing and fasting, the church at Rock Springs in 
1843 agreed “to attend to it twice every year immediately after the 
communion.” This action of the church was later revoked. 

On August 5, 1891 G. W. Newman gave about one-fourth of 
an acre — all land inside the enclosure of the graveyard — to relatives 
and friends of the dead who are buried at Old Rock Springs, to 
“be kept and used for a public graveyard forever hereafter.” 

An interesting note from the minutes of 1883 is a recommen- 
dation of the deacons that each member pay five cents a month 
for church expenses, and that each member give something to the 
support of the pastor. 

Included in the Decorum was the rule that “no male member 
shall be allowed to leave the house in time of conference unless 
by permission of the moderator.” And also in the Decorum : “It 
shall be the duty of each member present at our communion to 
take their seats in order whether they partake of the elements or 
not, but if they refuse twice in succession they shall make the 
cause known to the deacons privately and on failing, the deacons 
shall report them to the church.” 

A custom now discontinued was inviting visiting brethren and 
sisters to seats with them at the regular Saturday conferences.

Sending a committee from the church to visit a male member if he 
had been absent twice from regular conference without having giv- 
en explanation is no longer practiced. There still lives an old report 
that Brother Murdock McRae for eighteen years did not miss a 
Saturday meeting and conference. Then came a day when he was 
absent. One of the brethren in the church, knowing something 
was wrong, hurried to Brother McRae’s home and found him with 
a broken arm. Another custom no longer continued is roll call 
at each monthly conference. 

Reflecting the history of the times is mention of the reception 
of slaves into the membership. They are designated by their first 
names and as being the property of the members who owned them. 
They also were subject to discipline. In the minutes of May 16, 
1857 is this entry : “Resolved that it is the sense of this church 
that it is the duty of members to bring up their families both 
bond and free to our regular church meetings both Saturday and 
Sabbath but that we regard it as a matter which should be left to 
the conscience of each individual member.” 

Records include numerous cases of offenses for which mem- 
bers were disciplined and were excluded if satisfactory acknowledg- 
ments were not made to the church. The following list is repre- 
sentative : selling spiritous liquors ; dancing, or allowing it to be 
carried on at one’s residence ; telling lies ; fighting ; drawing one’s 
coat to fight, and getting mad and wanting to fight ; keeping a 
disorderly house (where fiddling, dancing, and gambling were car- 
ried on) ; running horse races and betting on them ; drinking too 
much spiritous liquors; profane language ; unchristian conduct; 
fornication; adultery and bastardy; card-playing; slandering; ob- 
taining property under false pretenses ; abusing his wife ; quitting 
wife or husband ; selling and proposing to sell property that did 
not belong to him ; denying the faith ; forging notes ; breaking the 
Sabbath ; being unsound in the faith ; moving away leaving his 
church subscription not paid and other matters unsettled ; not 
believing in future rewards and punishments. The church, find- 
ing one brother “dissembling and refractory, thought it most for 
the glory of God and the good of His cause to exclude him, there- 
fore withdrew fellowship from him.” Other practices not tolerated 
by the church were resorting to dram shops, and the purchasing 
of lottery tickets. Time after time in the regular conferences a 
committee was appointed to investigate some rumor about a mem-

ber or to see an offending one and “cite” him to the church con- 
ference or “labor with” him. 

These are the clerks who have served Rock Springs Church : 
Abner Webb, John J. Hussey, William Davis, J. C. Webb, W. J. 
Johnson, Webster McRae (for a short time, and the incumbent 
O. G. Moore, who, with almost thirty-eight years of service to his 
eternal credit, continues his faithful work in this office. 

Twenty-two pastors have shepherded Rock Springs Church. 
They are respectively: William Lacy, William A. Hunter, A. B. A. 
Simmons, John R. Humphries, H. Williams, James M. Russell, 
John F. Bledsoe, John Cumbee, R. A. J. Cumbee, G. E. Brewer, 
C. P. Sisson, W. M. Blackwelder, W. C. Bledsoe, A. S. Smith, J. 
L. Gregory, C. A. Strickland, L. B. Crantford, A. E. Silvey, C. M. 
Cloud, A. C. Yeargan, J. D. Okeef, B. B. McGinty. 

In recent years Mrs. Julia Lamb departed this life at the age 
of ninety-seven. She had been a member of Rock Springs Church 
eighty-one years. Mrs. Laura McKee, now in her eighty-eighth 
year, has been a member seventy-one years. She recalls the great 
crowds that used to fill the building, and the joy that the people 
found in their monthly worship services. 

Throughout the years the highest tide was anticipated during 
the summer “big meeting,” when worship and evangelistic ser- 
vices were protracted and held twice a day for a week or more. 
This was a time anticipated and enjoyed, the climax of the year, 
a season of fellowship and hospitality, as well as of spiritual re- 
freshing. During this week the approach of evening found people 
from divers directions winding their way towards the church to 
gather there at “early candlelight.” 

Reverend Francis Calloway, who preached the sermon on the 
day when Mount Paran Church was organized, is buried in the 
cemetery of Antioch Baptist Church, Chambers County. His grave 
should be a sacred shrine to interested visitors. In the Rock 
Springs cemetery rest many faithful leaders whose affections were 
set on their church. Their lives were centered in it ; they helped 
to carve out the glory and dignity with which it has stood as a 
burning and shining light in the community for over a hundred 
vears.

JEREMIAH AUSTILL 

The autobiography of one of Alabama’s most distinguished pioneer citizens. 

(This valuable paper was presented to the Alabama State Department 
of Archives and History in 1912 by R. T. Irvin, of Mobile. It had prob- 
ably come into Mr. Irvin’s hands through Judge Henriosco Austill, son of 
Jere Austill. It was through Judge Austill that a very beautiful oil por- 
trait of his father was preesnted to the Department and hangs on the 
walls of the World War Memorial Building in Montgomery. Judge Austill 
came to Clarke County with his father in 1813 and took part in succeeding 
years in the perilous border warfare of that day. He was only nineteen 
years of age when he participated in the famous Canoe Fight with Sam 
Dale and others. In his mature years he became an extensive planter, 
raising huge cotton crops. Descendants reside in South Alabama, Vir- 
ginia and other sections of the country. He died in 1881.) 


My father, Evan Austill, was married to Sarah Files, in Pen- 
dleton District, S. C’., in 1793, and I was born the 10th of August, 
1794, and the Cherokees being at war with the United States until 
the year 1798, when a treaty was held at the Ocony Stations, 
whereupon Silas Dinsmore was appointed Chief Agent, and my 
father as an assistant and mechanic, to teach the Indians civiliza- 
tion ; whereupon the Agency was established near the center of the 
Nation, upon the Otenally River, the main branch of the Alabama 
River, to which place they moved in the same year, and in 1804, 
I was sent to Col. Rhode Easley’s to school, at the high school of 
the Appelachy, Ga. But as the Colonel was rarely at home, his 
servants treated me very badly, as well as a half-breed of my age. 
My father came and carried us both back to the Nation; when at 
the age of eleven years old, he carried me to Pendelton, S. C., near 
the same place, in charge of George Reed, a very strict Presby- 
terian, where I remained one year, and returned to the Agency. 
At the age of twelve years, my father employed an Englishman 
to teach me and three of my sisters one year, which finished my 
schooling. I then went to my Uncle’s, David Files, in Jackson 
County, Georgia, and remained in his store for several months, 
returning home went to work on his farm until 1809. My father 
determined to move to Alexandria, La. We started about the first 
of December, by way of the Mussel Shoals, thence down the Ten- 
nessee to the Natchez Trace, down which we proceeded within 
twenty miles of the cotton gin on the Bigbee, where we were 
water bound from excessive rains. For several days we could not 
move either way, until we nearly starved out, we then returned to 


82 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


Colbert, on the Tennessee, to procure provision. The winter re- 
mained so wet, and the water so high, we were compelled to re- 
main until April of 1810. In the meantime, Jim Vann, a celebrated 
Chief, or leading man of the Nation, was murdered, who had been 
opposed to the sale and removal of the C'herokees across the Miss- 
issippi. My father concluded the sale would then be made, hence 
we returned to the Nation where we had lived, and made crop of 
corn and other provisions. But as there was no prospect of an 
early sale of the County, and in the interval, James McGaffin, just 
from St. Stephens, Ala., stopped a week with us, and such was his 
praise of Clarke County, my father was induced to pack up and 
move to new Clarke, which had been but recently bought from 
the Choctaws. It was indeed all one could desire, the production 
of the virgin soil was all one could ask, the range unsurpassed, 
and game in abundance. 


An incident occurred on our way down through the Creek 
nation to Montgomery, just what is now Wetumpka, we were 
stopped by a large body of warriors, alleging that it was against 
their law for any one to move through their Nation. A council 
was held to determine whether we should be murdered, or all our 
stock, horses and effects taken from us. During the council, an 
Indian countryman came from Tuckabatche, and informed them 
that my father had obtained leave from Double Head to come that 
way from the Cherokee Nation, whereupon we were allowed to 
pass on, and Quarles remained with us until we reached Dales 
Ferry. Test we might be disturbed on the way — for the Indians 
were very hostile at that time — . We started with sixty head of 
fine cows and calves, and on reaching the long leaf pine, the cows 
were taken with the murrin, and all died except one cow and 
twenty-one calves, and we settled on the dividing ridge between 
the river five miles below what is now Suggsville, and in the 
spring of 1813, we rented land enough to make a supply of corn 
and other crops. In June, it became evident that the Creek In- 
dians were preparing for war, whereupon the settlers in the neigh- 
borhood assembled and built a stockade or fort, six hundred yards 
South of Father’s house, into which about seven hundred souls 
moved in, and we had very little space left. Soon after, we learned 
some two hundred and fifty Indians were on their way down to 
Pensacola for ammunition, taking Jim Cornal’s wife, a white wo- 
man, prisoner, burning up his possessions and corncrib, giving the 
place the name of Burnt Corn. Whereupon, the citizens of Clarke 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


83 


and Washington Counties raised a force of about two hundred or 
more mounted men, under the command of Col. James Castin and 
Major Woods, with Capt. Samuel Dale, McFarlin, Murrell, who 
crossed the Alabama, and marched on to Burnt Corn, there taking 
the road to Pensacola, after proceeding some ten miles down into 
the fork of Burnt Corn Creek, where they met some one hundred 
and fifty or two hundred pack horses with all the Indians in the 
rear ascending the ridge. A charge was ordered, but on entering 
among the pack horses, found the Indians retreating back on either 
side into the cane, and instead of pursuing them, most of the men 
dismounted, each to secure a pack horse. The Commander dis- 
covered the Indians ascending each stream in the cane to sur- 
round them, the Colonel ordered his men to fall back, when the 
Indians discovered the confusion, they raised the war whoop and 
charged on the Commander, producing a panic, and fled. The Col- 
onel could not check the men, leaving several men on foot who 
were pursued and killed. Thus ended the Burnt Corn battle. 

At that time I was confined with ague and fever, father being 
absent in Georgia when the war broke out. Soon after that he 
returned alone, traveling through the woods south of the towns 
and highways, swimming the Conecue and the Alabama Rivers, 
to the great joy of all, and was immediately elected Captain of the 
Fort. I had been reading medicine from the time of our forting 
under Dr. Lorry, dressing and operating in surgery under his in- 
structions, to all that were wounded, up to the last of September, 
when I had sufficiently recovered to join an expedition in search 
of the Indians who were committing destruction to everything up 
Bassetts Creek, being absent several days. Soon after our return, 
some Indians approached the Fort and killed one of the soldiers, 
who was a short distance from the Fort. Col. Haynes, U. S. Mar- 
shal, desired to send dispatches to General Claiborne, at the ar- 
senal above Mobile, for aid, whereupon I volunteered to carry the 
same, leaving about twelve o’clock. I crossed the river at Car- 
ney’s Bluff, and reached headquarters at eight o’clock next morning, 
and instead of sending aid, he advised the abandonment of the 
Fort, and ordered Col. Carron, who had come to our aid with cav- 
alry, to escort us to St. Stephens, where he would make his head- 
quarters. About two-thirds left accordingly, leaving my Father 
and forty-nine others able to bear arms, men, boys and negroes, 
to fight it out. Two weeks later, Claiborne sent Col. Carson back 
to our aid, with two hundred men, when Capt. Dale proposed an 


84 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


expedition upon the Alabama, and was joined by Capt. Jones, 
making up in all seventy-two men. We struck the river above 
Gainestown, where we procured two canoes, where we spent the 
night in the cane, without fire, 12th vok, 1813. The next morning, 
Dale, with all but eight men, started up the East bank, leaving 
me in command of the boats, to keep parallel with the land forces. 
On reaching Bagley’s farm, a halt was made, and Dale came on 
board and crossed to the farm and searched the same, finding 
plenty of fresh tracks. Returning, Dale started up for Randon’s 
plantation, where I was to meet him. Soon after starting, I dis- 
covered a boat descending with ten Indians in it, who seeing us, 
tacked about. We immediately gave chase, and gained fast upon 
them ; half a mile above, they ran up Randon’s creek into the cane, 
soon after Dale and Jones met a party of Indians in the cane cross- 
ing the creek, Dale killed the one in front, the Indians dropped 
their packs, and a fire was kept up for a few minutes, and Indians 
fled in the cane. As the firing ceased, I pushed on up to the land- 
ing, soon after the land party arrived. This was at Randon’s 
Landing, below Cornel’s Landing or Ferry. Capt. Jones crossed 
over with his men and all of Dale’s Company. But twelve men, 
to say, Dale, May, Creagher, Smith, Brady, myself and six others, 
were roasting potatoes and beef taken up at the creek where the 
fight took place, and just as we were taking our potatoes out of 
the fire, a large body of Indians were discovered branched off on 
either side to surround us. We ran to the bank of the river, and 
neither of the canoes had returned, the small one was on the way 
over, but then we discovered a large canoe descending with eleven 
Indians in it. We ascended the bank some twenty yards, as we 
were in a three acre field, and commenced firing on the Indians 
in the boat, which was returned by them for several rounds, when 
two of them leaped out, and made for the shore about sixty or 
eighty yards above us, and above the mouth of a small creek. 
Smith and myself ran up to kill them, we were followed by Creagh- 
er, who found us up to the waist in mud. being very 

heavy, we had to stand on the slope of the bank. I slipped and 
fell into the river in pursuit of one of them, both carrying their 
guns above water. Smith killed one of them, and the other sprung 
up and pointed his gun at Smith, as he ascended the bank, passing 
over my gun. I was after him, but ere I got my gun, he was in 
the canoe. I pursued him some forty yards for an open place to 
shoot him, and was in four feet of a place to fire, a gun was fired 
within thirty feet of me, the load passed just over my head. I turn- 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


85 


ed to fire on the offender, and Creagher had just ascended the 
bank of the creek, as I was hopping in the canoe, supposing me to 
be an Indian; by this means my Indian escaped. We returned to 
Smith, and descended the river on the turn of the bank to our 
squad. Dale, in the meantime, called to Capt. Jones to send over 
the large canoe to capture the Indian boat, and eight men started 
over, but when within fifty yards, the man in front rose up so as 
to see the number who were lying down loading their guns. He 
sung out to the paddler to back out, as there were too many In- 
dians in the boat, whereupon they retreated back. The small boat 
having reached us, paddled by a negro, (old Caesar) during the 
interval, I ordered Brady to ascend the second bank and see if 
land party of Indians were closing in upon us, he crawled up, but 
seeing no Indians, he rose upon a pile of rails, whereupon some 
seven guns were discharged at him, shooting the breach of his 
gun off ; with one bount he was in our midst, swearing it was too 
hot up there for him. Dale then proposed to Smith and myself to 
board the boat. Dale leaped down some ten feet, Smith and my- 
self following. We entered the boat in the same order, placing 
me in bow; we ran out some twenty yards below the Indians, 
and they rose up. We all attempted to fire, Dale’s rifle and my 
own missed fire from the wetting of our priming getting into the 
boat, Smith missed from the rolling of our boat. Dale then ordered 
Ceaser to paddle up in a hurry, upon approaching the boat, the 
Chief and myself exchanged blows with our guns, I caught the 
end of his and drew him up to me, in reach of Smith and Dale, 
who brought him down, Dale breaking his barrel into. Smith 
caught the muzzle end, and fought out the battle with it, Dale 
getting Smith’s gun with which he made his blows, I used the 
Chief’s. Just as we were running up broadside, I had two on me 
at a time, until Dale got in the Indians’ boat, and placing himself 
opposite to Smith, on reaching the last two, one of them knocked 
me down with a war club, falling across their boat and holding 
on to the club I recovered my feet, one in each boat ; a scuffle 
ensued for the club, which I gained, and knocked him overboard, 
the one in my rear having been killed by Dale and Smith ; so ended 
the battle. We then started back, old Caesar paddling, Smith 
holding the boats together, while Dale and myself threw the In- 
dians overboard, there being still eight in the boat, and when 
about half out, a ball passed through the boat, and on looking up, 
saw three Indians on the second bank just above our nine men 
then under the first bank, the second one, taking rest on a stump, 


86

we stood up sideways, his ball struck the water short of the boat, 
and the last took his seat with a large bored rifle, I could see along 
his barrel, and felt sure he would hit me ; I drew myself up and 
stopped breathing, his ball passed within an inch of my abdomen, 
much to my relief. As we were approaching the same shore, the 
Indians retired to the main body of two hundred and eighty In- 
dians. We received our nine companions, and crossed over to the 
West without the Indians knowing it. We ascended the river 
bank until we reached the public road, and returned to the Fort. 
I was much bruised from the top of my head to my fingers ends, 
warding off the blows, and for several days later, was unable to 
use my left arm, but during the fight did not feel the blows, not 
one word was spoken after my first blow by either of us until all 
was over, and the only weapons saved was the Chief’s gun barrel 
and the war clubs. The barrel was much bent over their heads. 

Early in December, General Claiborne arrived with his army, 
and was joined with volunteers under Sam Dale, of our Fort. 
Proceeding to the Alabama River, where several Indians were kill- 
ed, we crossed on a raft, and built a fort at Claiborne, as a place 
of deposit. There we were joined by C. I. Russell, with the Third 
Regiment, thence we marched up the public road within a few 
miles of the big swamp creek and built a stockade for the wagons 
and cannon, leaving thirty men as a guard. Turning off to the 
left, we crossed big swamp creek, and reached within six miles 
of the Holy Ground, where we spent a very cold night without 
fire, but an Indian crossed our trail fire-hunting, and before he 
could be captured, he dropped his light and fled to the town, where 
he gave warning, and before sunrise, the women and children and 
their effects had been carried across the river, and at daylight, our 
army crossed a point of three hundred yards, breaking ice an inch 
thick. Scouts were seen on the opposite bank where we formed 
for battle, and ere we advanced fifty yards, the Indians opened 
fire upon the whole length of our line, a charge was ordered, and 
a continuous fire was kept up until we reached the towns, where 
they made a stand for a short time, then they fled up and down 
and across the river. We camped near the towns, which we rifled 
and burned that evening. The next morning our men were fired 
at across the river, whereupon Russell offered fifty dollars to any 
one that would would swim over for a canoe, a soldier swam over 
and brought one, I entered it and carried over Pushmatahaw and 
five of his men, who lay down on the bank until I carried six sol-

diers, when we marched up the bank into the cane to give the In- 
dians battle, but they fled in the cane. We found a quantity of 
plunder piled up in the cane, our Indians and soldiers loaded them- 
selves with booty, I appropriated one pair beaded garters. We 
then some thirty canoes, and returned over the 

river. The army marched that day up to Bell Weatherford’s farm, 
the next morning we marched back to our Fort. Passing a farm, 
we surprised three Shawnees and killed them, and that night we 
reached the Fort, thence back to Claiborne, without a single ration 
of bread or meat— nine days. I had saved two ears of corn which 
I parched, and gave half to others of my companions. On our re- 
turn to Claiborne, rations were issued, and before anything could 
be cooked, three-fourths of the army was drunk, and all of the 
Indians but one were stretched on the ground. Several of the 
volunteers died after returning home. Some days later. Col. Rus- 
sell started upon the West side with the Third Regiment, and two 
Companies of volunteers, my Father commanded one of them. 
The two companies were mounted, and a schooner was sent up the 
Alabama to meet them at Cahaba, the old town, the land force 
taking one week’s rations with them. But before reaching Cahaba 
were out of provisions. They remained there four days waiting for 
the schooner, after eating one poor horse. Russell sent Lieutenant 
Wilcox, with two others, down the river to turn the schooner back, 
and to fire a swivel to let the land party know 

where they were. The schooner had passed Cahaba before land 
force reached there. Lieutenant Wilcox landed on his way down, 
and soon after saw an Indian swimming, and just at his boat. He 
ran down and dispatched other Indians, fired and killed the Lieu- 
tenant ; George Foster, of his party, ran in the cane and made his 
escape. A few minutes after, the schooner dropped down and 
rescued the body of Wilcox, this gave rise to the name of the 
County. Soon after the battle at the Holy Ground, General Jack- 
son attacked the Horseshoe upon the Tallapoosa — where most of 
the upper towns were fortified — nearly all the Indians were killed. 
Jackson then marched down and built the Fort of his name. Soon 
after, Weatherford surrendered, and peace was made with the In- 
dians, whereupon the people of Georgia commenced moving upon 
the Alabama. I determined to select a location, and went up with 
eight others to settle about the Tallapoosa. I made a location on 
the bluff where Montgomery now stands. At the same time, Col. 
Fisher, of St. Stephens, induced a man by the name of Jones, wife 
and two daughters, to occupy a Mail Stand, on the road above 


88 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


Murder Creek, near a small creek, with a view of resuming the 
transportation of the mail, and upon my return, I reached within 
five miles of Jones — leaving the road some half mile, camped for 
the night, lest the Indians might be on my track, as it was known 
that small parties were still out. The next morning, just after 
sunrise, I crossed the creek, proceeded fifty yards, ascended an 
abrupt elevation of ten feet, in full view of the stand twenty yards 
off. At that instant, Jones cried “Murder!” and I saw four In- 
dians holding him down on his back, and another elevating his 
tomahawk to split his head, and with a flash of mind, I looked 
back and called out “Come on”, and charged upon the Indians, 
who let go Jones, and fled for the swamp some three hundred 
yards. I passed Jones in hot pursuit, as he was rising up, and 
he said, “Ah, damn you, you run now, do you.” I pursued on 
until they approached the swamp. I then drew up and looked 
back and abused my Company for not coming up. Three of the 
Indians fired on me as they entered the cane, without effect. I 
remained there some ten minutes, talking all the time, that they 
might believe that I was not alone. On my return, Jones and his 
family, whom the Indians had not seen, being after water, had 
packed up their clothing and were on the way to Claiborne. I 
remained with them for some ten miles, I then left, and reached 
Claiborne that night. The next day Jones arrived, and said to 
me he would stop until he reached the Mississippi. Soon after, 
the Government forbid all persons from settling upon public land 
without a special permit. My uncle, Col. D. Files, was then open- 
ing a store at St. Stephens, and urged me to abandon my contem- 
plated location at Montgomery, and act as clerk for him ; this was 
in the latter part of 1815, where I remained until the month of 
November, when John Hillard died in Mobile, to whom my Uncle 
had given a letter of credit for twenty thousand dollars, and had 
just arrived with a stock of goods. On receipt of the news, I 
mounted a horse and reached Mobile at sunrise, discharged the 
goods, and opened the store and sold about three-fourths of the 
stock up to the first of June. I then shipped the balance to St. 
Stephens. Soon after my Uncle was appointed paymaster to settle 
the debts incurred during the war, with a draft on New Orleans 
for the money. I set out for New Orleans, and arrived there by 
steamer the 28th July, drew the money, bought a bill of groceries, 
and on the first day of August was taken with yellow fever, and 
would certainly have died but for Dr. Carr, who insulted me very 
highly, and I discharged him, and my friends called in a German

doctor — and from one hundred and eighty pounds I was reduced 
to less than one hundred, and did not leave until the 8th of Sep- 
tember, and it is more than probable that I would have been 
robbed and murdered on my return. Two butchers and a Creole, 
hearing that I was to bring a considerable amount of money on 
my return, waylaid the road fifteen miles above Mobile for some 
time, being disappointed, they robbed a stranger coming down 
to the city of six hundred dollars. The Creole was taken upon 
suspicion, and turned State’s evidence. The butchers escaped, so 
ended the case. 

I remained with my Uncle till the first of April, 1818. I set 
out on sail for New York, taking on some seven hundred bales of 
cotton, a storm came on when passing the bar, and was driven 
high and dry, had the cargo taken out and reshipped, in going 
through the channel were fired into by a whom 

we were approaching to speak to. We tacked about. Some days 
after, came very near being captured by a pirate, and but for a 
finer looking vessel approaching, which was captured, and we 
escaped and arrived in New York the 8th of May, 1818. The cot- 
ton was sold at thirty-two to thirty-five cents. I purchased a 
stock of goods, and shipped out for Files and Austill. Then came 
on to Baltimore, to settle some bills of my Uncle, and meeting 
with Major K we went down and spend a day with the officers 

at Fort McHenry. The next day the Major and myself returned 
to Philadelphia, settled some bills there, thence back to New York, 
where I remained until the 12th of December. I then returned 
by Charleston to Augusta, where I obtained a horse, and reached 
Claiborne the 5th January, 1819, to which place my Uncle had 
moved our store. In 1820, we sold our stock at auction, having 
previously sold by wholesale to merchants at Ca- 

haba, Montgomery and Greensboro, all of whom failed, as cotton 
fell from twenty cents to seven or eight cents, causing a general 
bankruptcy. My Uncle had been appointed Marshal for South 
Alabama, and on the 20th of October, died of the same year, leav- 
ing me much involved in debt. 

I was married on the 9th of March, to Martha Hayse, daugh- 
ter of Captain James Hayse, at Burnt Corn, the same year, and 
she died on the first of November, 1820. My father died on the

18th of October, 1818, from disease contracted in Florida, in pur- 
suit of Indians, who had killed two families in what is now part 
of Butler County, he being Captain of a Cavalry Company at that 
time. After my wife’s death, I sold my farm at Burnt Corn, and 
paid off some seven thousand dollars of my liabilities, and returned 
two negroes given to my wife by Captain Hayse. I transferred 
my interest in my Father’s estate to my Mother, and of three fine 
horses I owned. They all died in the space of three days, of dif- 
ferent diseases. Tolliver Livingston was appointed Marshal for 
the unexpired term of my Uncle, who being a cripple, appointed 
me Deputy, to discharge the duties of Marshal, which place I 
filled until the fall of 1823, when the Judge appointed me Clerk of 
the District Court at Mobile. I then settled there, and was ap- 
pointed weigher of cotton, which was then weighed with English 
a slow process. I soon after had the calipers made, 
by which I could weigh seven hundred bales or more in the day. 
Soon after the planters commenced sending their cotton to sell, 
which increased so much that I was compelled to resign the clerk- 
ship, going then entirely into commission business. In all this 
time, I bought a negro woman for my Aunt, and supported the 
family for two years. In 1825 a Volunteer Company of Irish was 
made up, called the Irish Greens, and elected me their Captain. 
And after being well organized and uniformed, the yellow fever 
killed all of the Company but six or seven, and broke up the Com- 
pany in 1826; and in 1827, the first Hook and Ladder Company 
was formed, and I was made Foreman of the same, which place 
I occupied until February, 1829, when Thomas Rhodes and my- 
self contracted to carry the mail to New Orleans, by land to Pas- 
cagoula, and thence by water to New Orleans. We were to build 
the road for four thousand dollars, and carry the mail for fourteen 
thousand per annum. The contract was entered into in 1828, we 
completed the road and commenced carrying the mail in the fall 
of the same year. But from the increase of the passengers, and 
softness of the road during winter, caused several failures, and 
our boat did not answer the purpose. Well, I determined to go 
and have a new boat built at Pittsburg, proceeding by the way of 
Washington, which place I reached in time to witness General 
Jackson’s inauguration as President, and such was the crowd that 
not a vacant bed could be had within ten miles of the city. After 
trying in vain, I hired a chair to sleep in by the fire. About 
eleven o’clock at night, Col. Dinsmore came in from a large book 
sale and discovered me, and rousing up, gave me half his bed

whilst I remained. After the inauguration, I drew eight thousand 
dollars on account of the contract, and to my astonishment, found 
the stages engaged for three days ahead. A day after, however, 
a steamer left for Baltimore. I succeeded in getting on board, and 
found so many that no more than one half could even lie down 
that night. The next day we reached Baltimore, finding a number 
desiring to take the same route. We had a hard race for the of- 
fice, I reached it first, and entered my name and a friend, making 
five, with three of the city. The Governor of Ohio and his suite, 
six in number, slipped off to the contractor, and were taken ere 
it came round for the first three. Seeing the trick, I got in the 
stage and shoved two of the suite overboard, and called in my 
friends. The result was, the Governor got out with the balance 
of his suite, the first three got in, and off we drove.

LIFE OF MARGARET ERVIN AUSTILL 


(Margaret Eades who has left this hitherto unpublished account of 
her experiences as a young girl, daughter of a pioneer and witness of 
many of the bloody scenes of the Creek Indian War of 1813-14, married 
Jeremiah Austill, whose autobiography also appears in this issue of the 
Quarterly. Mrs. Austill died in 1890 having borne several children whose 
descendants still live in South Alabama and other sections of the country. 

The magazine’s object in presenting from time to time personal reminis- 
cences of life in Alabama, is to inspire the present and future generations 
to emulate the qualities of courage and moral fortitude exemplified in the 
lives of their ancestors, the founders and builders of this great State.) 

My father, John Eades, was a native of Georgia, my mother. 
Jenny Fee, was born in Ireland, in the County Atmah. Fathei 
and Mother first met in Augusta, Georgia, where they were mar- 
ried in 1802. They then left Augusta and bought a farm in Wash- 
ington County on the Uchee Creek, where they lived happily and 
made money rapidly. Father had a saw mill and cotton gin, about 
the first one that was put up in the County. I well remember 
the mode of packing cotton in that early day. A round bag was 
fixed in a round hole in the floor of the gin house, which hung 
down some ten feet. A big negro man jumped in with an iron 
crowbar, two hands threw in the cotton, and the packer did the 
work by jambing it hard with an awful grunt every lick. I was 
dreadfully afraid to go near the big bag with Hie negro inside 
shaking it. 


Oh, it was a sad day when Father determined to move 
to Louisiana, but so it was, that on a bright morning in the spring 
of 1811, the wagons were loaded and three families were assembled 
at my Father’s house. My Uncle, Daniel Eades, his wife and one 
daughter, Mr. Billy Locklin and wife, and about one hundred 
slaves, men, women and children, and with much weeping at part- 
ing from dear old friends, the drivers cracked their whips and off 
we rolled, much to my delight. But my sister, five years older 
than myself, was weeping bitterly. I was all talk, she said to me 
“Do hush, you too will rue the day.” Childlike, I reveled in a 
bustle and change. Well, the first night we camped at Sweetwater 
Iron Works, where Father’s sister, Mrs. Jenkins, came to bid us 
good-bye. She was a jolly old soul, — was Aunt Priscilla. She 
spent the night with us in camp, after breakfast next morning she 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944

drew out a flask of rye rum from her pocket, saying “John and 
Daniel, I drink to all, good luck attend you, but the next thing I 
hear will be that you all have been scalped by the savages, so be 
on your guard, for war will surely come, and that soon. Farewell, 
may the Lord guide you through the wilderness.” Our party 
traveled on through the Cherokee Nation without the least trouble. 
The Indians were kind and friendly, but as soon as we entered 
the Creek or Muskogee Nation, we could see the terrible hatred 
to the white, but as we advanced, we were joined by many movers, 
which gave us more security. At night the wagons were all fixed 
round the encampment, the women and children and negroes in 
the center, the men keeping guard with guns, so we made a for- 
midable appearance of defense. One night after a fearful day, the 
Indians had followed us for miles, we camped in an old field. Just 
as supper was announced, a most terrific earthquake took place, 
the horses all broke loose, the wagon chains jingled, and every 
face was pale with fear and horror. The Indians came in num- 
bers around us looking frightened, and grunting out their prayers. 
The trees lapped together, and Oh, the night was spent in terror 
by all, but next day some of the Indians came to us, and said it 
was Tecumseh stamped his foot for war. Then the rain set in, 
not a day without rain until we crossed the Alabama, there were 
no roads, and mud and water large creeks to cross with slender 
bridges made by the Indians, which they demanded toll at a high 
price for every soul that crossed a bridge, and often rather than 
pay, the men would make their negroes cut trees and make a 
bridge, which gave the Indians great anger, and they would threat- 
en us with death. No doubt we would have been killed had it not 
been for Uncle Daniel Eades, who had been stolen from the Fort 
in Georgia by the very people that threatened us. He was a little 
boy, only a year old when the Indians took him from the nurses 
and carried him to the Nation, and gave him as a present to their 
big Medicine Man, who raised him and taught him his craft in 
roots and herbs. He would talk to them and defy them, he would 
go to his wagon and draw out Grandfather’s long sword that he 
wore in the Revolution, brandish the sword, and speak to them 
in their own language, telling them they were fools, that they 
were nothing, and could never whip the whites, but that their 
Nation would be destroyed. They would listen to him, and raised 
their blankets around their shoulders and move off, doggedly shak- 
ing their heads. Well, finally we crossed the Alabama River at 
Dale’s Ferry, we then were in Clarke County, bound for Louisiana, 


94 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


expecting to cross the Tombigbee next day at Carney’s Ferry. 
That night we camped at this place, some of the neighbors came 
to see us, Mr. Joel Carney, Mr. Henry B. Slade, Mr. George S. 
Gullet, and every one begged Father and all the travelers with him 
to stop here until they could recruit their teams that were com- 
pletely broken down. They said we could never get through the 
swamp on the other side of Bigbee, and after a consultation, all 
consented to remain until they could make corn to fatten their 
teams. Father bought this place, which was only a claim with a 
small log cabin on it. Daniel Eades rented the Sun Flower Bend, 
Billy Locklin built a cabin on Salt Creek, and put up a saw and 
grist mill on the creek in a very short time, the first saw mill that 
was built in Clarke County. So Father put some hands to cutting 
cane and planted corn. He had brought a whip saw with him, 
he put up large logs of pine on a scaffold, and with two negroes, 
one on top and one at the bottom. They sawed planks for flooring, 
for every family then lived in cabins on ground floors. Father 
kept on building and making us comfortable, but when the corn 
was gathered, Uncle Daniel Eades said, “Well, John, it is time to 
be off, let us hurry up and be gone, the waters are low, the roads 
good, the teams fat, and all well. This is no country for us, let 
us travel.” Father said, “Daniel, I am getting* fixed up here, the 
water is splendid, the land good enough, and you have made a fine 
crop of corn, we have wild game plenty for the shooting, and I 
can’t see that we could do better.” “John,” he replied, “You will 
never make a fortune here, so come with me, I hate to leave you, 
but here I will not stay.” But Father would not leave, so Uncle 
Daniel left, and we only had one year of peace, for the Indians 
came down upon us with vengeance. Uncle Daniel came back 
for us, said everything he could to get Father to go with him, but 
all in vain, so he left us to battle through the fearful war. One 
morning, Mother, Sister, and myself were at home alone except 
the servants, Father had gone to the plantation, when a man rode 
up to the gate and called to Mother to fly, for the Creek Indians 
had crossed the Alabama, and were killing the people. Mother 
said, “Where shall I fly to, in God’s name?” He said, “There are 
a number of people coming to cross the Bigbee to get into the 
Choctaw Nation, they will be along in a few moments, but where 
is Captain Eades?” “Down at the river,” said Mother. “Well,” 
he said, “Run, down there and go over the river,” so we took our 
bonnets, Mother took her silver, and we left the house in a run. 
Our cook, a tall black handsome woman, said “Missus, I will stay 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


95 


at home and take care of things and take you something to eat 
if I can find you, the devils are afraid of me, you know.” Mother 
said, “Hannah, you will be murdered.” Hannah was a natural 
curiosity, she was black, or rather blue-black, with clear blue eyes, 
which gave her a peculiar appearance. As we traveled through 
the Nation the Indians often came to the camp and demanded 
bread, they would say “bread, gimme some, gimme all,” Mother 
would say to Hannah to give them bread, she would say, “I had 
rather give them shot and powder,” then she would stretch her 
blue eyes and throw chuncks of fire at them, and make them scam- 
per off, saying “Och, och,” their grunt when frightened. 

Well we ran as fast as we could, and met Father about a mile 
from home with horses, he had heard the news too. Mother sent 
the horses on to help a family by the name of Carter to get to the 
river, they had a large family of small children. Father told us 
that people were gathering at Carney’s Bluff, and were at work 
there building a Fort, all hands, negroes and whites. When we 
arrived at the river it was a busy scene, men hard at work chop- 
ping and clearing a place for a Fort, women and children crying, 
no place to sit down, nothing to eat, all confusion and dismay, 
expecting every moment to be scalped and tomahawked. We all 
sat round until night, people coming in continually, for this part 
of Clarke was thickly settled, I went to Mother and told her I was 
tired and sleepy, she untied her apron and spread it down on the 
ground, and told me to say my prayers and go to sleep, so I laid 
me down, but could not sleep, the roots hurt me so badly. I told 
Mother I had rather jump in the river than lie there, she quietly 
replied, “Perhaps it would be best for us all to jump in the river,” 
then made me lie still. I had thought Mother would take me on 
her lap if I was so willing to die. With superhuman exertion, the 
-Fort was finished in one week, the tents all comfortable, the streets 
full of soldier boys drilling, drums beating, pipes playing, but no 
Indians yet. Our scouts were out all the time. The brave fellows 
had a hard time tramping through swamps and canebrakes, but 
Oh, after the war did set in in Thirteen, we were in great peril 
all the time. 

One night our sentinels were hailed by Jere Austill, they 
came and awoke Father, who went out immediately and let him 
in. He told Father that the Fort Sinquefield had stampeded, the 
people all making for our Fort or St. Stephens, and the people in 
his Father’s Fort, near Suggsville, were in the act of breaking up 


96 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


too, but they had concluded to send him down to the arsenal for a 
Company of Regulars, and if they could get them, they would 
hold the Fort. Mother roused the cook, and gave Jere a nice sup- 
per at midnight, Father put him over the river and saw the Gen- 
eral, told his business, and was glad to hear the order for the 
Company to come back with him, but Jere begged to be excused, 
said “Send the soldiers, but I must travel alone.” 

We fared very well in the Fort, thanks to Hannah, the faith- 
ful servant that stayed at home. She made the garden, milked 
the cows, churned the butter, raised chickens, and came every 
other day to the Fort with a large basket on her head. Mother 
would say, “Hannah, you are a jewel, what would we do without 
you, thanks to your blue eyse.” So often she said she saw moc- 
casin tracks in the path. Time passed on with fear and trembling 
with the grown folks, but we children engaged every moment. I 
was in every tent in the day, some laughable things would occur. 
There was a Mrs. Smith, quite an original, she was a very good 
woman, but violent tempered. The boys took great delight in 
teasing her, she often threw hot water on them, one day the car- 
penters were at work building a block house to mount a cannon 
on the top, two of the men became outrageously mad with each 
other, and Garner, a great bully, who was always kicking up a 
fuss, drew a broadax on a defenseless man, screaming lie would 
split him open. The man took to his heels and Garner after him, 
threw tents over women and children, finally the man ran through 
Mrs. Smith’s, and Garner after him, full tilt, the old lady grabbed 
up a three-legged stool, saying “ dead”, but I let him 

have it, one corner of the stool struck Garner on the temple, and 
down he went, blood spurting from his nose. She thought she 
had killed him dead. She ran over to Mother’s tent and said, 
“Where is Captain Eades? By the Lord I have killed Garner, 
and he must put me over the river, for Garner’s folks will string 
me up if they catch me.” She ran to meet Father, and he took her 
to the river and set her over in the canebrake. She said, “Now 
you go back, and if Garner is dead, you come to the bluff and 
whistle on your thumbs, then by the Lord Old Betsy Smith is off 
to the Choctaw Nation.” When Father returned, Garner had been 
brought around, and after that became a very quiet and peaceful 
man, never bragged or bullied more during the war. 

After we had been in the Fort six months, the Indians became 
very hostile, crossed the Alabama and burned houses, corn, de- 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944

stroyed cattle, and killed people that were at home in spite of all 
that could be done by the scouts. Every family was obliged to 
go into a Fort. There was an old widow named Cobb, who had 
two sons old enough to be in the service, but she told them to stay 
at home and make corn, she was not afraid of Indians, but one 
day while the boys were plowing in the field, they saw Indians 
jumping over the fence, the boys stripped the gear off the horses, 
mounted in a moment, and flew to the house, calling their Mother. 
She ran out to meet them, and just as she passed her chimney 
corner, she saw her dye tub with indigo blue, she just turned the 
whole contents into her lap, jumped up behind her son and gal- 
loped to our Fort from Choctaw Bluff, eight miles. When they 
arrive, they were all blue, from head to foot. That was the only 
thing they saved was the thread that was in the blue dye. The 
women in the Fort all joined and soon made a piece of cloth of the 
blue, for all had spinning wheels and looms in the Fort, for it was 
the only way that clothes were obtained in those days. The day 
Fort Mims fell was a sad day to all the country. Every heart 
nearby became paralyzed with fear, and our men that had been 
so brave, became panic striken, and their families pleading to be 
taken to Fort St. Stephens. Father and dear old Captain Foster 
spoke to them in vain, they stampeded, some families took to the 
canebrakes, some to St. Stephens, some down the river to Fort 
Stoddard, where the arsenal is now. Just as Father and Mother, 
with Sister and myself were in the act of getting into the canoe 
to cross the Bigbee, for not a soul was left in the Fort, a young 
man came running down the bluff calling to Father not to leave 
him, for God’s sake, to be murdered, for the Indians were coming. 
“Oh, don’t leave me, I shall die if you do.” Mother was standing 
on the bank until we were safely seated, for the canoe was a small 
one, could only carry four persons. Father told the man that it 
was impossible for him to take him in that his family must be 
saved first. The poor fellow cried out, “Oh, God, I shall be killed.” 
Mothe rsaid, “Oh, dear husband, take the coward in, I will wait 
here until you come after me,” and she actually pushed him in, 
and with her foot sent the canoe flying off, and sat down on the 
sand quietly waiting Father’s return. As soon as the boat struck 
shore, the fellow made tracks for the Choctaw Nation. In a few 
days, after the excitement, all the people returned and pledged 
themselves to remain and hold the Fort. In the meantime, the 
young folks were courting and making love, although they were in 
a Fort expecting to lose their scalps at any moment. Mr. George

S. Gullet became engaged to my sister, Mary Eades, and then 
implored our parents to allow the marriage, because he could be 
of so much help to us, could take care of Sister, and then Father 
would only have Mother and me to take care of, so they consented 
that the marriage should take place in the Fort. Mother sent 
Hannah word that she must get up a large wedding supper, and 
manage to get it to the Fort. Hannah came down in a complete 
upsetment, “Name of de Lord, Missus, what I gwine do for all de 
silibubs and tings for Miss Mary’s wedding?” Mother said, “Never 
mind, Hannah, make plenty chicken pies, I can buy turkey from 
the Choctaws, save cream, make plenty of potato custards and 
huckleberry tarts. We will have coffee enough for all the Fort, 
so go right at the work.” “Well, well, did I ever tink to see de day, 
did I ebber, my Lord, Miss Mary must be crazy. But she set to 
work with a will. Invitations were general to the whole inhabi- 
tants of the Fort, they were married, and a jolly wedding it was. 
One old man sat down to the long table, looked over at Mother, 
and she said, “Help your self, sir.” I thank you, Madam, I will 
with presumption.” I laughed, and being a little girl, was sent off 
from the table. 

Not long after the wedding we had a respite, the Indians were 
driven back, and all returned joyfully to their houses. Very few 
had been destroyed this side of Choctaw Bluff, but we could hear 
of fearful murders. Men would venture too far, and again and 
again we were forced to return to the Fort until at last General 
Jackson came to our rescue and finished the war. All the gallant 
young men joined his army. My Father carried his provisions up 
the Alabama in his barge, even as high as Fort Jackson above 
Wetumpka. Sam Dale, Jere Austill, and many others were with 
Jackson fighting like heroes for many months, and after the In- 
dians gave up, they went with Jackson to Pensacola and Mobile, 
some went to New Orleans. Austill was very sick at the Battle 
of New Orleans, but one of his cousins was killed there, he was a 
Files. About the last of Fourteen all the people were gay, money 
was plenty, and the people were pouring in by thousands. The 
County was filled with young men looking for land, school teach- 
ers getting up schools. The largest school in the territory was at 
St. Stephens, there I was sent with many a poor little waif to 
learn grammar. Our teacher was Mr. Mayhew, from North Caro- 
lina, a splendid teacher and good man.

POEMS 

FOR THEM NO POPPIES 

(A contemporary sonnet) 

By Mary S. Butler, Selma, Alabama 

For them no poppies blow; 

No song of lark on nearby thorn; 

No whisper of the neighboring corn ; 

No friendly sound of scythe or hoe. 

For them, O restless desert sand, 
Forever shifting, day and night, 

Keep motion in a lonely land, 

Neath Libyan sky, now dark, now light. 

Warm sun, shine gently on each cross 
That marks fond parents’ filial loss. 

Soft breezes from the ancient sea. 

Go forth and sing their elegy. 

And, white stars gleaming overhead, 
Stand guard above our gallant dead ! 


EMBLEMS 

I taught my son to love his Flag ; 

To make his wishes on a star ; 

I told him life was beautiful ! 

But that was Peace and this is War. 

A flag was draped upon his bier ; 

They sent to me the medalled dross ; 

And now I know what price is Peace : 
Renunciation, and a cross. 

— Lucille Key Thompson 


GOOD-BYE SON, BE A GOOD SOLDIER 

They said I was brave 

Because dry-eyed I watched him go. 

But I know — And by this token 
It is not so ... . Inside I’m broken.

I WILL LOOK UNTO THE HILLS 

I do not ask for power to see what is withheld, 
Nor yet to have my sorrows all dispelled. 

Only that I might have the patience of the hills 
To bear whatever comes to me. If ills 
Befall me, Lord, this darksome day. 

Let me remember — others too, have gone this way 
The way is long — Ah yes, the steps are steep ! 

Give me courage, Lord, and let me keep 
My vision clear to see through every ill 
The fall of sunlight on a hill.

V-MAIL FROM MOTHER 

By Martha Lyman Shillito 

Look to the nearest, brightest star 
Somewhere out there, wherever you are 
Safe hid within the glowing heart 
In words too tender to impart 
You’ll find my treasured memories 
To bind our hearts across the sea. 

Beyond some valley of despair, 

Climb to the highest hill and share 
My hour of happy interlude 
Of faith and humble gratitude 
That each night you may read anew 
My constant love and need of you. 

“COLOUR BEARERS” 

We have never forgotten those boys in grey, 
Nor the boys who wore the blue. 

Though they crossed their swords in battle fray, 
Each were soldiers brave and true ! 

But time has erased the bitter sting 
And healed the Country’s wound, 

And united, our prayers and our praises ring 
For the boys in the khaki brown !

And reverently bow your head.

Here sleep our Soldier Dead ! 

A laurel wreath we have laid 
Against each simple cross. 

They, with their life, have paid ; 

Tis ours to mourn their loss. 

May honors to them never cease. 

They died to keep us free. 

May each one find eternal Peace 
At that last Reveille ! 

With choice wreaths for our Soldier dead, 
Forget not, living ones need bread !

It is given many a name ; 

Pink, white or yellow flowers, 

All love it just the same. 

It greets us in the garden; 

In the woodland ; from a pot. 

Spreading cheer for every one, 

No matter what its lot. 

And when the evening draws 
The sable curtains over day, 

It is then the lovely Oxalis 
Folds her leafy hands to pray! 

And in that attitude of prayer 
She sleeps all through the night, 

But wakens joyfully to greet 
The early morning light.

“WHITE IRIS” 

Tone White Iris by the cemetery wall, 

Lifting up your lovely head 
Standing brave and tall ; 

A fitting symbol for our dead, 

Guardian over all. 

You lift your standards to the sky, 

A tribute to the risen Lord ; 

Spread perfume with each zephyr’s sigh, 

Your incense, to the One adored. 

Not one can pass you by. 

White Iris, sing your praise to God ; 

Your lonely vigil keep, 

For there is something precious in the sod 
Wherein our loved ones sleep ! 

— Eithylle Wright Neill

THE GULF THAT SEPARATES 

Man visions high-flung viaducts of steel 
And stone: behold a miracle is wrought! 

Great stony piers and climbing arches feel 
Their way through a resisting torrent, taught 
By man’s strategic mind. There is the sound 
Of riviters, of pounding drills, a thud 
Of hammers echoing in fierce rebound, 

Spanning the chasm, conquering the flood. 

So moves the world of man in endless transit, 

Always another bridge to plan and build ; 

Vistas obscuring life’s inevitable sunset, 

When night grows dark with fond dreams unfulfilled. 
I build no bridge, for only God can see 
The gulf that separates my love from me.

NO -WELCOME SONG 

Is it then “Good-Bye? 

And you will go away? 

Into the dreamy past, while I . . . 

I must stay? 

Nights of silver sweetness, 

Whirr of vibrant wings, 

All of life’s completeness, 

A bird sings : 

Fireflies, dew falling, 

A brisk wind from the west, 

Must you go? Some one calling? 

0 stay, and rest ! 

1 sing no welcome song, 

To this bold new-comer, 

My heart goes right along 
With you, sweet summer.

THE DAHLIA 

The dahlia is the queen of flowers, tall, 

Majestic, radiantly towering 

Above the flowers that bloom in early Fall. 

Acknowledged sovereign, her subjects fling 
Their loveliness in homage at her feet, 

A splash of color — yellow — purple — red. 

In silent recognition of complete 
Allegiance, she bows her stately head. 

The colors of the Autumn sunset were 
Distilled to tint her coronation gown, 

And, tipped with diamonds, her gorgeous sheaf 
Of fringes glitter in the morning stir 
Of nature. Regally she wears her crown 
With one regret, her glory is so brief.

THE SONG THEY SANG ON FOURTH OF JULY IN OLD 

MONTGOMERY 

The poem printed below was sung at the Independence Day 
celebrations in Montgomery on July 4, 1823. It was written by 
Charles Shaiv, one of the first lawyers and teachers in the town. The 
verse is worth preserving, if for no other reason than that it re- 
flects the friendly sentiments of Americans of that day to Greece 
struggling against Turkish rule and the Spaniards in their war 
against the Holy Alliance of the monarchs of Europe. 

It was sung to the tune of the “STAR SPANGLED BAN- 
NERS better known in those days, as the air of “Anacreon in 
Heaven,” an old English drinking song. 

“When the Birthday of Freedom rolls 
around with the year. 

What heart beats not high in its glad 
celebration ; 

From despot abroad or at home 
naught to fear, 

While one kindred soul inspires our 
whole nation. 

No guardian need we, 

On the land or the sea, 

To protect our own rights — We are 
born to be free. 

Beneath our own oaks, and our 
own pines we’ll repose, 

While our soldiers and sailors 
repel all our foes. 

Shall Honor forget the names of 
the brave, 

Who for man and his rights so bravely 
contended ? 

Their names shall not sleep in obliv- 
ion’s grave — 

On Washington’s scroll to Heaven, 

They’re ascended. 

There a galaxy bright 

On the globe they throw light, 

And spangled with glory the robe of the night.

“On the plains of fam’d Greece see 
the bannered-Cross rise. 

And high o’er the Crescent resplendently 
streaming ! 

Her heroes of old look down from the skies 
On the fields where their swords once o’er 
tyrants were gleaming. 

Like Spartans of old 
Her fair daughters bold 

Cheer her sons to renown — clad in fleece of gold 
“So Constantine’s banner fix’d bright in the air, 

A Cross in the Heavens — God’s sign of salvation.”

BOOK REVIEWS 


Tuskegee and the Black Belt by Anne Kendrick Walker. The Dietz 
Press. 1944. $3.00. 

Anne Kendrick Walker is well known to Alabamians as an 
historian, particularly through her widely popular Backtracking in Bar- 
bour County. This fact, with the added fact that her most recent vol- 
ume is dedicated to an historian (Mrs. Marie Bankhead Owen) 
indicates something of the quality of the book. Tuskegee and the Black 
Belt offers an historical approach to race relationships in the South and 
the social evolution of the Negro. In her short, well written volume, 
Miss Walker offers no radical program of political reform and no 
conservative program of economic repression. As a matter of fact, 
she offers no practical program at all. Her book, consequently, 
is something new in the vast library of recent books about racial 
problems. But Miss Walker, as a student, has read history with 
understanding and is a liberal. She has read that democracy is an 
expanding ideal in modern history, not an a priori fact. She has 
read that the troubles of white people and colored people are so 
closely knit that the historian must write about both when writing 
about one. 


If Tuskegee has a single theme, it is “the practice of friendship 
and justice among the two races.” The quotation is not drawn 
from the body of the book, but from the Introduction — the finely 
humanitarian speech made by Governor Chauncey Sparks on Foun- 
ders Day at Tuskegee in 1943. But although she did not coin the 
phrase, Miss Walker is most concerned with these practices of 
friendship and justice, their beginning, their growth, and their 
trend. 

The tone of the volume is set by the Art Section at the very 
beginning, consisting of twenty-nine plates. This is largely com- 
posed of scenes from Negro life reproduced from the paintings 
and lithographs of Alabama artists. The fact that Kelly Fitzpat- 
rick, Anne Goldthwaite, Mildred Nungester and others are well 
represented indicates not only the aesthetic value of the plates but 
their realistic integrity. 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944

Tuskegee is divided into three parts. Part 1 includes some con- 
sideration of provisions for early education in the South and a de- 
tailed account of the history of Tuskegee Institute. Here the 
author does some of her finest writing, with portraits of Booker T. 
Washington, Professor Carver, Dr. Moton, and Dr. Patterson. 
They stand out from her pages against the background of Tus- 
kegee life as the remarkable men they were. Miss Walker’s skill 
with picturesque and significant detail is well known to her read- 
ers. Booker T. Washington, is there with all his gift of oratory 
and vision, but also with the nervous tic that wried his smile and 
his maddening habit of calling on people day or night if he wanted 
to work. 


Having shown that exigencies of the War Between the States 
led to the beginning of one of the finest of the “practices of friend- 
ship and justice among the two races,” the author proceeds to prob- 
lems that arose after World War 1. Here she quotes the articulate 
of both races, radical as well as conservative. The chapter headings 
indicate her approach. “The Negroes’ Bill of Grievances” and “The 
White Man’s Woes” include a long list of greater and lesser com- 
plaints : segregation, inadequate leadership, disfranchisement, eco- 
nomic discrimination. To these and many more Miss Walker acts 
as arbiter rather than pleader. Whenever she presents a problem, 
she also presents a counter-problem, a gloss, or a modifying com- 
ment. It is the line of history and justice she is indicating. 

In all that formidable list the author never loses her calm, 
sane detachment of her sense of justice. It is a skillful technique 
she uses. There is accusation of no one, only a marshalling of facts 
and opinions to show that both races have troubles and that the 
welfare of one is the welfare of the other. By quotations and facts 
she also shows that neither incendiary nor reactionary has stopped 
the flow of history toward the achievement of freedom for non- 
white races (yellow and red, as well as black). 

Part 111 is largely given over to Negro accomplishments in 
art, music, and literature, as well as the use of Negro materials 
by white artists. The list itelf and the discussion offer a nice bal- 
ance to the Art Section at the beginning of the volume and return 
the reader to the original tone. Part 111 also gives some consid- 
eration to the future of the Negro race, the effects of migration, of 
disease, of admixture of races, and other complicated physical and 
psychological factors. 


108 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


Miss Walker offers no geo-political program, no cut-and-dried 
solution. But she ends with emphasis on the fact that the prob- 
lem of race relationships is no longer a Southern problem. It is 
national and international. It involves not only Negroes but all 
non-white races. She leaves little doubt in the reader’s mind that 
the solution of the problems will be part of the evolution of the 
stream of history. She leaves even less doubt in the reader’s mind 
that the basis for sound race relationships must be found in the 
“practice of friendship and justice among the two races.”

The Fatal River — The Life and Death of La Salle by Frances Gaither. 

Henry Holt & Co. 

This book of Mrs. Gaither’s is neither her first nor her last 
effort and has probably not proved her most popular nor widely 
read. It is a chonicle, a biography, or as her publishers term it a 
dramatic narrative, which among the general public would attract 
fewer readers and admirers than her last novel Follow the Drinking 
Gourd. 

There is nothing that stamps it as essentially modern or time- 
ly. It is of the type that can be read today or a decade hence and 
prove as interesting and as valuable at the one time as at the 
other. Unfortunately, in view of the ceaseless procession of books 
surging through the press and shoving one another off the book 
counters, it is a question if, in another decade, it will be remem- 
bered, since it falls short of being a masterpiece. It is true that 
many authors write for the immediate present and do not aim or 
expect to survive as standard or classic. But it is to be regretted 
that after so much labor and thought with such excellent results 
such a piece of literature should be shelved. 

For Mrs. Gaither does expend thought and time and effort in 
gathering her material. All her books have a factual or historic 
or atmospheric basis which require wide reading, deep research 
and careful assimilation before they attain their final form. When 
possible she has visited the localities described, saturated her mind 
with distinctive characteristics and caught the local color — all of 
which give a sense of reality and authenticity. Where she has 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


109 


not been able to see with the physical eye, it is evident that her 
mind’s eye has framed a vivid picture. 

In this book, The Fatal River, the story opens in the French 
city of Rouen and she portrays the streets, the church spires pierc- 
ing the fog, the wharves and the leaning, gabled houses with such 
a realistic even loving touch that one is inclined to believe that 
she has seen them. She and her husband, Rice Gaither also a 
writer, spent several months in France years ago and it is a prob 
ability that she rambled through these same streets, entered the 
cathedral, and stored away memories to be brought out eventually 
in some as yet unthought-of volume. 

The Fatal River, so named by Joutel, one of La Salle’s faithr 
ful companions, is of course the Mississippi and the chief character 
he who was born Robert Chevelier, who after his childhood school- 
ing was to become Brother Ignatius of the Jesuit Order. But the 
restless adventurous heart broke its clerical bonds and he sailed to 
Canada. There to conceal his disaffection to the church he took 
the name of Rene (or as some books give it Rene Robert) adding 
the name of his father’s property near Rouen, Rene de la Salle and 
still later by the grace of King Louis XIV becoming Sieur de La 
Salle. But to the world at large he is simply La Salle whom the 
historian McMaster terms “one of the greatest explorers of our 
country.” 

The story of this eager, daring, adventurous youth and the 
sad, weary man he became before his quest is ended, together 
with his many expeditions, achievements, disasters, disappoint- 
ments and death are more or less well known to any reader of 
history, but Mrs. Gaither creates an atmosphere and furnishes set- 
tings that are vivid and convincing. The account moves clearly 
and without confusion. 

The bibliography accompanying the study shows the surpris- 
ing amount of original material still in existence : letters, diaries, 
documents, etc., from which the author was able to draw and 
which give to her account the accuracy and sequence that make 
her book so readable. On the other hand, however, one wonders 
if in the matter of detail and repetition the narrative does not be- 
come a bit over-loaded and retarded and the reader proportionately 
weary. 


110 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


She makes vivid those early years spent in travel back and 
forth through the Great Lakes, struggling with storms and the 
hard Canadian winters, building forts and establishing outposts 
and negotiating with the Indians — some friendly and others hostile 
and held in check only by gifts and tactful dealings. 

The heart-breaking loss of boats, desertion of his companions, 
machinations of jealous priests and fur dealers, false reports, doubt- 
ing epistles from the King in France and crowning sorrow — perfidy 
of his own brother, the Abbe Jean Chevelier — these are the matters 
that fell on his troubled heart and made his friends urge him and 
his enemies believe him destined to abandon his original purpose 
of tracing his great river to the Gulf. 

This second stage of La Salle’s explorations — the finding and 
tracing the river below the point previously reached by Marquette 
and Joliet was little less arduous and unhappy than the first farther 
north. Although by this time having sanction of the king to estab- 
lish a settlement and take the country in the name of France, 
here again he was sadly hampered, especially by Beaujeau, the 
captain of the largest of the three vessels that had sailed with him 
from the mother country. 

Some writers claim that LaSalle was difficult to deal with 
since he was often silent, secretive and severe. But a man who 
could transform hostile and suspicious savages into faithful friends 
must have been endowed with unusual tact and patience. He evi- 
dently expected greater understanding and cooperation from white 
men and those his own countrymen. But it was his sad fortune 
to meet in great measure with jealousy and opposition. And this 
attitude reached its climax in his treacherous murder by one of his 
own men among the tall grasses on their weary way back to the 
northern country. 

It’s a sad story, but his was a resolute soul driven by a burn- 
ing ambition and one feels that he might have taken for his motto 
the words of the French poet Corneille: “A vaincre sans peril on 
triomphe sans gloire” — “To conquer without danger is to triumph 
without glory.”

Miss Susie Slagle's by Augusta Tucker. Book Review by ‘Medicus”. 

Johns Hopkins Medical School and a Mobile author — Augusta 
Tucker — combine in this volume to present a most readable novel. 
The author writes with perfect ease and is sure of her material, since 
she lived and studied and observed years before she gave her pic- 
ture to the public. And that small world that centers in Baltimore 
around the famous school and was built up and is still permeated 
by the spirit of the great four, Doctors Osier, Welch, Halstead 
and Kelly, is a world to be respected if not revered. 

More specifically this story centers in the boarding house of 
Miss Susie and one is reminded of Dr. Holmes’ breakfast table, 
save that here it is not so much conversation as action that gives 
importance to the young men who gather about Miss Susie’s 
board. 

Miss Susie herself is a fine character whose generous table 
and quiet influence have been famous through two generations of 
medical students. Her knowledge of human nature, intuition, wis- 
dom and love are all clearly and beautifully portrayed. Only a 
little less strong and influential are the love and intuition of her 
man-cook and butler, Hizer. 

The story carries a group of young men through their years 
of study and training, their aspirations, their discouragements and 
for some of them their loves. And these loves are clean and beau- 
tiful. Indeed, though medical students are supposed to be a wild 
lot, there is in this book nothing sordid or vulgar or salacious. 

The author proves her breadth of sympathy and understanding 
in treating of a Jewish student and his problem, of negroes in the 
hospital wards, of the poor in the slums and of German Otto 
across the street from the hospital. 

Augusta Tucker’s characters are clearly drawn and she, like 
Miss Susie, is a discerning reader of character. She brings out 
very sharply the respect and loyalty of the students towards their 
instructors, even though they discuss them frankly and with hu- 
mor. But they find them surprisingly and helpfully human. And 
the devotion of these masters to the great cause of science and 
the welfare of humanity is without question. 


112 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


^ There are certain high points that touch the heart: the negroes 
singing to their people in the wards at Christmas, the dinner with 
the Jewish family and in particular the account, as the book closes, 
of the spiritual beauty and sweetness of Miss Susie as she calls 
together before she dies her “boys.” The love and devotion and 
deep respect of these same “boys”, students and professors alike, 
is plain. There’s a fineness and gentleness in some of them whom 
she had helped over difficult emotional crises and had molded into 
wholesome manhood and a spirit befitting the perfect physician. 

But now, having said this much in praise, one must question 
the author’s judgment in certain respects. She is of that school 
that paints, not in broad strokes but in the cumulation of small 
details. One could refurnish Miss Susie’s parlor to the least item 
and this might be excusable since it was Miss Susie’s and revealed 
her quaint taste and her respect for the memory of her parents. 

But the minute itemizing of Jefferson Market on Christmas 
Eve seems a debatable matter. Anyone who has sauntered with 
interest through a great city market at any time and into the 
larger delicatessen shops will recognize the accuracy of her de- 
scription. She lists everything from pork to pickles, from cheese 
to cranberries, from sauerkraut to sage. But with it all, one asks 
“Is it Art?” 

So too her book might become a guide to Baltimore as she 
names the streets and gives an opportunity for Nan Rogers and 
Elbert Riggs to view and study from a high place the important 
buildings and monuments of the city. 

But the most serious deflection from recognized standards of 
fiction writing seems to this critic to be the combining of the story 
with medical records — case histories in brief. It is easy to believe 
that to some, probably to many of her headers, descriptions of the 


SPRING ISSUE, 1944 


113 


dissecting room and the appearance of cadavers would be displeas- 
ing if not painful. The probings and resultant specimens of au- 
topsies, operations on a woman’s internal structure, and the easy 
discussion (though not in Miss Susie’s presence) of syphilis, can- 
cer and other matters anatomical and pathological, could easily 
leave the reader either faint or furious. 

And so — reading with these mixed emotions, one can but 
wonder if even in these uninhibited times a good novel can be all 
things to all men : a guidebook, a market guide, a medical treatise, 
a character study and a love story. And thus wondering the critic 
repeats the question “Is it Art?” 

(This review won the award in 1944, and was written by Mrs. Mary Heath 
Lee, President of the Tuesday Study Club of Fairhope, Alabama)

EDITORIAL 


This issue of the Alabama Historical Quarterly, Number 2, of 
Volume 6, is devoted to the publication of the Civil and 
Military Appointments in Alabama Territory, 1818, and in 
the State of Alabama, 1819-1822. These appointments include 
those made by Governor William Wyatt Bibb, Territorial Gov- 
ernor, 1817-1819, and Governor Thomas Bibb, 1820-21, who as Pres- 
ident of the Senate succeeded his brother following his accidental 
death. Israel Pickens, the third Governor, made the appointments 
recorded through 1822. In addition to the civil, military and 
judicial appointments made by the Governors, the names are given 
of the first State Legislative Representatives both in the House 
and Senate. There is included also a list of the first lawyers of 
the State. 

In compiling this volume great care has been taken to repro- 
duce the original records, and therefore no effort has been made to 
correct spelling, punctuation or other clerical errors. Frequently 
a family name, or the name of an individual is spelled two or more 
ways, so that further research would be necessary to determine 
the correct spelling. This work has been compared several times 
with the original entries, and is generally accurate, although the 
old handwriting proved difficult in a few instances. 

The originals of these records are in the Department of Ar- 
chives and History, along with all other records of this character. 
The Department 'has made a card index of the Civil and Military 
Appointments from these manuscripts up to 1869 and the index 
will be brought up to date as soon as clerical assistance and time 
will permit. The record presented herewith applies to the follow- 
ing Counties: Autauga, Baldwin, Blount, Butler, Cahawba (now 

Bibb), Clark, Conecuh, Cotaco (now Morgan), Dallas, Franklin, 
Greene, Henry, Jackson, Jefferson, Lauderdale, Lawrence, Lime- 
stone, Madison, Marengo, Marion, Mobile, Monroe, Montgomery, 
Perry, Pickens, St. Clair, Shelby, Tuscaloosa, Washington and 
Wilcox. 

In order to present this material which is not only of historical 
but of biographical interest, the Quarterly for lack of space cannot 
produce its usual miscellaneous historical material. The next two 
issues will be given over to Revolutionary soldiers buried in Ala- 
bama and Census Returns for 1820. 


The Editor of this magazine cannot refrain from paying a 
proper tribute to the splendid work being done in the* division of 
civil records by the State Archivist. Miss Frances M. Hails, 
a native of Montgomery, who has been with the Department in 
that capacity for twenty-three years. The mass of State archives 
stored on the ground floor in the World War Memorial Building- 
covers its Territorial period, 1817, to the present time. This ma- 
terial proves of great value not only for business reasons but for 
historical and biographical needs. Before the present war necesi- 
tated the abridgment of travel the records of the Department of 
Archives and History and its great collection of old bound news- 
papers, were in use by adult students and research workers from 
half the States in the Union. Numerous historical books have 
been written from this material. The State officials consult the 
records as their needs require and in one box receipts were found 
that saved the State repaying a bill of $150,000. Miss Hails, the 
Archivist is so familiar with this vast collection of material which 
goes into millions of items, that she can in a moment produce any 
record that is needed. It has been the policy of the Department of 
Archives and History to make careful and appropriate selections 
of its staff and in its long history of forty-four years very few 
changes in personnel have taken place. For that reason the head 
of each division is an expert and it gives the Editor of this maga- 
zine who is also the Director of the Alabama State Department 
of Archives and History, great pleasure to make this acknowledg- 
ment of the painstaking work and fine personal qualities of the 
State Archivist, Frances Matthews Hails.

EDITORIAL 


This issue of the Alabama Historical Quarterly, No. 3, of Vol. 
6, is devoted to the publication of the first Census records of Ala- 
bama for eight counties for the year 1820 and an abstract of 
the Federal Census of Alabama for the year 1830. The Depart- 
ment of Archives and History has tried for years to locate the 
Census returns for other Counties covering the period but has so 
far failed. Not even the Census Bureau at Washington, D. C., 
has these early returns. 

Mrs. Gertrude Worthington Jeffries, of Birmingham and Boli- 
gee, Alabama, has given money to the Department as a memorial 
to her late husband, Frank M. Jeffries, to be expended for such 
other Census returns as may be found for 1830, 1840, 1850, 1860 
and 1870. Copies of some Alabama County Census returns were 
located in Washington, D. C., at the Census Bureau by Dr. Clanton 
Williams, Professor of History at the University of Alabama. He 
had microfilm copies made from these originals which are in the 
Amelia Gayle Gorgas Library at the University, and are being 
copied and indexed by Mrs. Pauline Jones Gandrud, of Tusca- 
loosa, for the Department. 

The Census returns for the eight Alabama Counties herewith 
presented were prepared under the direction of Miss Frances M. 
Hails, State Archivist, with the aid of Mrs. Mary Livingston Akin, 
her assistant in the archival division of the Department. Mrs. Akin 
is painstaking and accurate in her work and in addition to copying 
old historical records she also has charge of the portograph ma- 
chine for reproducing original records. These records from our 
archival material are frequently called for by students and business 
organizations, and prove of great help to both.

CAHABA. 

The following abstract exhibits the strength of the different 
counties, and the assessments of each ; by which it will appear that 
the northern part of the State is much more populous and also

From the Counties of Blount, Baldwin, Henry, Marion and 
Mobile, no returns have been made. Of the above assessment, 
only $18,677.29 have been received into the Treasury. The bal- 
ance of more than $22,000.00 is still due the State, a considerable 
portion of which it is supposed will never be collected. We un- 
derstand the County Court neglected to take from him the requi- 
site security ; of course the taxes from that County will be a dead 
loss to the State.

Secretary of State’s Office, 
Tuscaloosa, Nov. 13, 1832. 

Hon. Sami. W. Oliver, Speaker House of Rep. 

Sir — In compliance with a resolution of the House of Repre- 
sentatives of the 9th inst. “That the Secretary of State furnish the 
House with a statement shewing- the number of white population 
and the slaves in each county in this state, which was taken under 
the late Act of Congress of the United States,” I have the honor 
respectfully to transmit herewith a report which furnishes the in- 
formation required, together with the number of free persons of 
color, which was not called for by the resolution, but which may 
not be deemed irrelevant to the object of the call. 

4 

I have the honor to be, with great respect, 

Your obedient servant, 

JAMES I. THORNTON.

Revolutionary Soldiers in Alabama 523 


EDITORIAL 


In view of the fact that there are thousands of Alabamians 
who are descended from Revolutionary soldiers, either those buried 
in this State or in other States, the Alabama State Department 
of Archives and Historv is devoting- the 1944, Winter Issue of the 
Alabama Historical Quarterly to that subject. In 1911, Thomas Mc- 
Adory Owen, founder and for twenty years Director of the Depart- 
ment, published as Bulletin Xo. 5, a pamphlet entitled “Revolu- 
tionary Soldiers in Alabama”. In the Foreword of that bulletin 
Dr. Owen made the following statement : 

It is believed that the publication of this compilation will 
be of much practical service to large numbers of people inter- 
ested in a study of the personal records of the Heroes of the 
American Revolution. And this is true, although the lists are 
manifestly incomplete, and the sketches are wanting in many 
desirable details. 

The lists have been made up from altogether reliable and 
authentic sources. These consist of contemporary obituaries, 
drawn from old newspaper files; the Revolutionary Pension Roll, 
published by the U. S. Government as Senate Document 514, 3 
volumes, 23rd Congress, 1st Session, 1833-34 ; the Census of Pen- 
sioners, taken officially in 1840, and pifhlished by the U. S. Gov- 
ernment in 1841, in one volume; inscriptions from tombstones; 
well authenticated data taken from published family histories ; and 
the manuscript Pension Book, kept officially by the State Branch 
Bank at Mobile. A few other sources have been drawn upon. 
Citation of the authority or authorities has been given in each 
case. 


In 1904 Mrs. P. H. Mell published a paper containing 
thirty sketches, entitled “Revolutionary Soldiers Buried in 
Alabama.” It appears as pp. 527-572, Vol. iv, Transactions of 
the Alabama Historical Society, 1899-1903. Mrs. Mell had 
been State Historian of the Alabama Division of the Daughters 
of the American Revolution. While limited in numbers, her 
paper was prepared with great care. The sketches appear in 
their proper places in the list here presented, with due credit. 


WINTER ISSUE, 1944 


521 


Although a few lists of names, either by counties or localities, 
had been compiled, no pretentious effort, prior to the work of 
Mrs, Mell, had been undertaken. 


Inasmuch as this is but a preliminary effort looking to a 
complete and exhaustive record, the attention of the Depart- 
ment should be brought to any and all errors, to dates and 
places of death, to places of burial, to the names of those who 
removed from the State, and to all others whose names ought 
to be included. 

Montgomery, Ala., Sept. 30, 1010. 

In the thirty-four years intervening between that publication 
and the present one additions have been made to the list. The 
most active and zealous investigators of the subject iire the Daugh- 
ters of the American Revolution of which Society there are several 
hundred members in the State, descendants of Revolutionary 
soldiers of the original thirteen Colonies. In addition to the in- 
formation derived through the D.A.R., other sources have con- 
tributed to the list which sources have been credited in connection 
with each listing. In only one case was a Negro found on the list 
Ned Rice of Jackson County. There were, however, manv Negroes 
in the Revolutionary forces. 

The last list published here, located in Washington by Miss 
Maud McLure Kelly, Historical Materials Collector of the De- 
partment, is made up of men or their widows whose applications 
to the Federal Government for pensions were denied. These ap- 
plications were either rejected outright or were suspended pending 
additional proof which was usually never made. The most frequent 
grounds for the rejection of the application was that the service 
shown in the Continental Line had been of less than six months 
duration or that the service shown had not been rendered in the 
Continental Line but had been in the State Militia troops, or that 
the service had been non-military, such as wagoner for the troops, 
or express riding. 

The transportation of troops and other supplies was then a 
civilian job, not a part of military duties, and those engaged in it 
were civilians and not entitled to pensions under the law. One 
application was rejected because the applicant was too young to 


522 


ALABAMA HISTORICAL QUARTERLY 


qualify for a pension under the Act of Congress. Three were 
rejected because the service was rendered after the Revolution 
had officially ended and three because the applicants had deserted. 
The rejection of the applications of the widows was because they 
had married after the date named in the Act of Congress. One 
Act required that the marriage must have occurred before the close 
of the Revolutionary War, and the other Act of Congress fixed the 
date as before January 1, 1794. With the exception of the three 
whose service occurred after the close of the War and of the three 
who deserted, all of these men were loyal veterans of the Ameri- 
can Revolution. 

The Director of the Department of Archives and History 
wishes to express her appreciation of the painstaking work of 
M iss Mary R. Mullen in the compilation of this Quarterly. Miss' 
Mullen has been the Librarian of the Department for twenty-seven 
years having graduated in library science in the Library School of 
Emory University, Georgia. She has for twenty-five years been 
the Secretary of the Alabama Library Association and is regarded 
by the librarians of the Nation as a leader in the library profession.

BENTLEY, EFFORD, Departed this life, after a distressing 
illness of four weeks, on the 3rd inst. at the residence of his son, 
John G. Bentley, in Madison County, Ala., Col. Efford Bentley, 
in the 78th year of his age, formerly of Amelia County, Virginia. 
In his very boyhood he entered the military service of his country, 
during our revolutionary struggle ; on which subject he dwelt with 
more than ordinary interest. The writer of this was intimately 
acquainted with Col. Bentley, and was with him during his last 
illness. He Avas an affectionate husband, a tender parent, and 
highly esteemed by his numerous acquaintances. He bore his 
afflictions with truly Christian fortitude and patience ; he was en- 
gaged in prayer for several years, but it was in his last sickness 
that his piety was most conspicuous. But the patriot and Christian 
is gone to receive his reward. He has left a companion, eight 
children, and a numerous circle of relations and friends to mourn 
their loss ; but they weep not as those who have no hope. Our 
beloved and aged friend left indubitable evidence to his surround- 
ing attendants, that his peace was made Avith God. His friends 
may hoav prepare to meet him in hea\ r en, AAdiere they may enjoy 
that lasting happiness of which he so emphatically spoke, Avhere 
friends will part no more, but join in the praise of God forever.

B. was earh' in, and continued thro’ the entire war of the Revo- 
lution ; his services were rendered chiefly in the Southern States. 
He removed from the County of Mecklenburg, \ a., to Madison, 
Ala., in the year 1816, where he continued to reside, beloved and 
respected by his neighbours and acquaintances, until about two 
months ago. In June last, his old and beloved wife, with whom 
he had lived in the happiest state of matrimony for upwards of 
sixty years, was taken from him, by the ruthless hand of death ; 
and left him, as he remarked to the writer of this notice, without 
one single motive or desire to remain here ; and he only waited the 
call of his God, that he might be laid- by her side in the orchard 
of his son Franks. Mr. Blackbourn was a man of fine sense — was 
well versed in history, ancient and modern ; his kindness and 
benevolence knew no bounds, whilst upon these subjects he never 
let his right hand know what his left hand did. Mr. B. has left 
a large number of children, grandchildren and great grand children, 
to mourn his loss; whose tears were freely shed and mingled with 
those of his old neighbors — whilst the writer could but notice at 
the closing scene the deep distress and grief of his slaves, who 
were about him on that trying occasion. He is gone — he has paid 
the only debt lie owed upon this earth, and died, as he lived, an 
honest man, ‘the noblest work of God.” T. — Huntsville Democrat , Feb.

BRANDON, JOSIAH — Departed this life, in Lincoln County „ 
Tenn., in the triumphs of Christian faith, on the 5th inst., in the 
83rd year of his age, Rev. Josiah Brandon. Brother Brandon had 
been an acceptable, useful, and highly exemplary member of the 
Methodist E. Church for near 60 years, and about 50 years of that 
time a devout, zealous and useful minister of the gospel of Christ, 
beloved by all who knew him. As a minister he was vigilant in 
watching the interests of our beloved zion — labored and prayed for 
her prosperity and success, and he was permitted by the great 
head of the church to live to see her borders extend far and wide, 
and see the blood stained banner wave in majestic triumph over 
many nations. As a citizen in the “land of the free and the home 
of the brave,'” he, after having fought for the liberties of his country, 
spent a long and useful life in the enjoyment of that precious gift 
of HeaA^en to man, Liberty. He was ardently attached to the insti- 
tutions of his country-rendering unto “Caesar the things that are 
Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God’s.” His house was a 
home for many years for all the ministers of Christ. Kind and 
hospitable to friends, generous and liberal to the fatherless and 
widow, and distressed ; an indulgent father, the kind husband, the 
worthy citizen, the devout Christian. He had prayed for many 
years, that when the fatal hour came for his final dissolution, that 
he might pass the dismal vale without a struggle. His prayer was 
answered. The day on which he died he was happy all day, and 
in his usual health; at night he fell asleep in the arms of Jesus, 
without a murmur or a sigh escaping his lips. He has left an af- 
fectionate companion and a large circle of relations to mourn their 
loss. May they follow the sainted patriarch as he followed Christ.

resident of this county ; he had for a long time been a man of 
affliction, and for the last, two weeks of his life he was confined 
by exceeding painful affliction. Yet amidst all he neither mur- 
mured nor repined, but sustained it with patience, fortitude and 
resignation. He was an upright citizen, a kind neighbor and af- 
fectionate parent, and fulfilled the duties of life with correctness 
and fidelity ; kind and mourning friends ministered to the hours of 
illness, and watched around his dying couch, but all availed not 
to avert the fatal stroke. The hour of departure had arrived — ■ 
the summons of Him who gave life had recalled the vital spark, 
and the soul went home to the bosom of its Father and God. Be- 
reaved relatives and sorrowing friends may weep their loss, but 
their hour of mourning are brightened by the glorious hope of a 
joyous resurrection, and a full belief of a happy meeting in that 
better world where all is peace, where sorrow is unknown and 
happiness without alloy prevails forever. Sacred be the memory of 
the dead — long will the memory of his worth be cherished and 
the remembrance of his virtues remain to cheer and comfort the

Twiggs. He continued to reside near Augusta until 1818, when 
he removed to this State, and located himself in this county, where,

COZBY, ROBERT— Died— On the 7th day of October last, 
at the residence of his son, in the Town of Trianna, the venerable 
Robert Cozby, in the 69th year of his age ; a Revolutionary Pen- 
sioner, who received the enemy’s ball in the calf of his knee in the 
commencement of the War, which disabled him thro’ life. Not- 
withstanding his decreptitude, through a spirit of industry and 
vigilance, he was enabled to raise a respectable family. He died 
as he had lived, a steady and devoted friend to the cause of re- 
ligion. When spoken to about his approaching dissolution, he 
declared he had no wish to live, but longed for the happy change. 
He was interred, on the 8th, at the burying ground where his 
aged wife had been previously interred, surrounded by friends 
and pious Christians. 

N. B. — He never called on the government for his Pension 
till he came to Alabama, whence decreptitude and old age had 
combined to reduce him to penury and want ; then the Pension 
Agent at Huntsville paid him in depreciated paper, which should 
make a black mark in that gentleman’s conduct through life, 
except he make amends, acknowledges his faults, repents for the 
crime, and asks his God and his country for forgiveness. Though 
his friends have consolation in the belief that his soul is wafted 
to a more friendly port, where his agent will deal honestly and 
pay his pension in that gold which moths cant corrupt nor thieves 
break through and steal. — A Christian in the Neighborhood of 
Trianna — The Democrat, Huntsville, Ala., Dec. 2, 1825.

that Joseph Embry was the father of Sarah Tuck. In the old

And there are yet some few of his brethern in arms, who on 
reading these hasty sketched lines, will drop a silent tear at the 
recollection of by-gone days and dangers, in which the deceased 
bore a manly soldier’s part. He was seated at his breakfast table 
when the messenger of death came, and after a few minutes pain 
and warning, his immortal spirit returned to God who gave it. 
Encomiums are useless to the dead. — -It’s enough to know he 
fought the battles of his adopted country, and his name being 
enrolled with the heroes of the Revolution it became immortal. 
It being also understood he was a member of the Masonic Fra-

with one of the Heroes of the Revolution, Mr. Thomas Garrett,

town on horse back alone, for the purpose of receiving his pension. 
The old gentleman appears to be in possession of his faculties, 
answers questions readily and is quite humorous in his conversa- 
tion. 


He served for a considerable period under Gen. Sumter, the 
“Game Cock of the South,” and was profuse in his praise of that 
brave and chivalrous Commander. 

He was also at the battle of Fort Moultrie and the seige of 
Savannah, at the storming of the latter place, he stated that while 
viewing a wounded fellow-soldier, who lay among heaps of slain, 
the gallant Pulaski rode up, and remarked “My brave fellow, take 
care, you are in dangerous position” to which Garrett made answer, 
“General, if you intend to be in a place of safety, I’d keep near 
you.” Pulaski put spurs to his horse & rushed furiously into the 
midst of the fight, where he soon received a mortal wound, and 
expired in the arms of Garrett . — Voice of Sumter, Livingston, Ala.

GOGGANS, WILLIAM. William Gog'gans, a soldier of the

In early life, his parents emigrated to Newberry District, South 
Carolina. Young Goggans was an active soldier in the Revolu- 
tionary service. He was in Col. Williams’ command at the battle 
of King’s Mountain, where he was wounded in the left shoulder. 
Sometime afterwards while with a scouting party he was wounded 
in the left leg. And again, in another skirmish, he was struck 
down by a severe sabre stroke on the head and left for dead upon 
the field. After his recovery from this third wound, he rejoined 
his comrades and continued an active partisan to the end of the 
war. After peace was made, Mr. Goggans married Mary Da- 
shields, who died in 1800. About 1815, he married Elizabeth Kil- 
patrick. After many years’ residence in South Carolina, Mr. Gog- 
gans emigrated to Lincoln county, Tennessee. Thence in 1819 he 
emigrated to Lawrence county, Alabama, where he resided until 
the death of his wife in 1836. He then moved to Carroll county, 
Georgia, where he died March 21, 1852 at the home of Alexander 
Goggans, in the triumphs of a living Faith. He was buried the 
next day with military honors in the graveyard at Bethany church.

marker at the grave of Hon. William Goode, born in Powhatan 
County, Virginia, 1759, buried 1839 in the 80th year of his age on 
his plantation about three miles south of Whatley, Alabama. Mr. 
Goode was a large slave and land holder and prosperous and in- 
fluential in his time. He was married in Charleston, S. C., to 
Miss Sarah Jones, and reared a large family. His son Thomas 
Jefferson Goode was the grandfather of the above Mrs. Redwood,

and his daughter, Elizabeth Carolina Goode Tate, of Wilcox 
County, was the grandmother of the above Mrs. Vass. Mr. Goode 
was a first cousin of Thomas Jefferson and -Revolutionary War 
soldier. He was present when Cornwallis surrendered to George 
Washington at Yorktown. As we were placing this marker our 
minds reverted to the dim and distant past of colonial days. The 
hardships, privations and sufferings, of the great war that gave 
birth to Old Glory and American liberties. We thought of the 
young bride and groom of Charleston, S. C , then on the long and 
perilous journey through the wilderness subject to wild beasts and 
the treacherous Indians. Then we thought of them settling on 
the plantation of wide and fertile acres, with multiplied duties 
and increasing interest, enjoying the divine rights secured by our 
constitution and the great war. Then we thought of them rearing 
a large family to go out and bless humanity by emulating the 
example and cherishing the precious heritage of a noble ancestry. 

After placing the marker and erecting Old Glory and a short 
but impressive prayer, each of us went wending our way home- 
ward realizing it was good to be there. (Signed) Sam H. Gwin,

self to agricultural pursuits ; and in that quiet and favored mode 
of existence discharged, through a long life, all of the social duties 
of a man and citizen. He was an affectionate husband, a fond 
parent, and an indulgent master, and was universally beloved, not

acquaintance. He was a professor of the religion of Jesus Christ

ciples he practised. Having disposed of his property and settled 
all his earthly concerns, he was frequently heard to observe that 
nothing remained to him but to die ; and this last act of his life 
he performed with the calm and joyous serenity which the 
Christian alone can display — having full assurance, as he himself 
said, that in the approaching conflict with the King of Terrors, 
he should come off more than conquerer, through Him that loved

night’s repose; and if human conduct furnish any guide to future 
destiny, he has secured an interest in the first resurrection.

As wing’d with virtue thro’ the etherial skv, 

From world to world unwearied it doth fly.

Of Heaven’s decrees where wandering angels gaze ; 

Or mix’d with milder cherebims, 

And gentle like the dove, 

At Jesus feet he sits to glow 
In hymns of love.

lamented by an affectionate wife and seven children, and a large 
number of grand and great grand children. He was beloved by 
all his acquaintances and neighbors, and respected as an honest, 
benevolent man; and by his own industry had been placed in easy 
circumstances. It was his request of all his sons, that they should 
remain firm in the Democratic Republic principles, which he in 
part had fought for, and for the last several years had drawn a 
small pension from the government of the United States as an 
evidence of his service. He was born in England ; himself and 
his brother Richard, came to the United States when orphan boys, 
and having some knowledge of the British yoke, took up arms 
and fought bravely to rid this country of it : he joined the North

great many serious engagements. He died with a full assurance 
of future bliss.

Bartholomew Jordan. The deceased emigrated from North Caro- 
lina and settled near Huntsville many years ago. His unexampled 
piety, his orderly walk, and his Christian conversation, connected 
with his many acts of benevolence and charity, were well calcu- 
lated to endear him to the community in which he lived. Old 
Father Jordan, was emphatically one of those rare beings who left 
the world without an enemy. He seemed perfectly sensible of 
his approaching dissolution and spoke of his departure from this 
world as one who had long had it in his mind to visit his friends 
in a far off land, and appeared as though he was anxiously waiting 
for the arrival of the moment when he could set out upon his long - 
journey. His faith in the merits of a Saviour’s blood, like the sun, 
seemed to grow larger when setting, and abundantly showed that 
in his last moments his immortal soul was vigorous and strong, 
and that it remained unhurt amid the ruins of dissolving nature. 
The writer of this poor sketch feels confident that no one could 
have witnessed the last moments of this venerable old Patriarch 
and Saint without being fully convinced of the blessed reality of 
the Christian religion. While the poor feeble emanciated body 
was fast declining and the pulse became faint and few. The im- 
mortal soul, as if in the vigor of manhood, seemed like a bounding 
courser which had been long held back from the eager chace by 
the twisted bit, was anxious to be let loose from the body, that it 
might take its mystic flight into the boundless regions of felicity 
where even fancy itself has ceased to pursue. As a master Father 
Jordan was kind; as a friend and neighbour he was obliging and 
sincere ; as a father his affection for his children could not be 
surpassed. But he is gone to the better land, where it is hoped 
that his friends will all meet him . — Huntsville Democrat, April 9, 1842. 

KELLY, GRESHAM — Widow of this Revolutionary soldier 
who received pay as a captain on militia duty for two hundred

October 1, 1799, having married January 17, 1769, B Tatum. 

She died August 19, 1830. The Census of Jefferson County for 
1830 shows a female aged between eighty and ninety in the home

rison, as Isham Harrison’s mother, Elizabeth Hampton Harrison,

can Revolution placed an official bronze marker on the grave of 
Mrs. K. S. Kitchens of Monroeville. This old lady but recently 
passed on, was a real Daughter of the American Revolution. The 
daughter of a Revolutionary soldier, she was at the same time a

LACY, JOHN — Horn in Virginia, the son of Theophilus Lacy 
and Martha Cocke. His father died in Virginia while the mother 
died in 1812 in Rockingham County, N. C. The inventory of the 
estate of Theophilus Lacy was filed in both Pittsylvania County, 
Va., and Guilford County, N. C., and bears the date of November 
24, 1777. During the Revolution, John Lacy served in the Second 
North Carolina Regiment, Col. Alexander Martin, commanding. 
He enlisted in 1777 for the duration of the War, in Captain Vail’s 
Company, Second North Carolina Regiment, was promoted in 1778 
to sergeant-major, promoted in 1778 to sergeant, made ensign 
May 20, 1779, and resigned in the same year. He was listed among 
the officers and men to whom allowances were made in 1792 as 
having served in the continental line, and yet another time where 
he is listed, as of Hillsboro District. He must be differentiated 
from the John Lacy who enlisted July 20, 1778, for nine months in 
Captain Baker’s Company, Tenth North Carolina Regiment, Col. 
Abraham Shepard commanding. He married March 17, 1803, in 
Rockingham County, N. C., Polly Henderson, born January 16, 
1785, daughter of Thomas and Jane (Martin) Henderson, the latter 
a sister of Gov. Alexander Martin of North Carolina. The children 
were: Theophilus, born January 1, 1804, in Rockingham County, 
N. C.. died February 10, 1874, at Huntsville, Ala., married (1) 
Mary W. Harris, (2) Frances Hardeman Binford; Thomas Hen- 
derson, married Mary McClelland; Frances Hardeman, born 1810, 
died young; Alexander PI., born 1814, married Sallie Wall; John 
Lacy removed to Madison County, Ala., and owned land in both 
Madison and Morgan Counties. Lacey’s Springs takes its name 
from him and he are his wife are buried there. 

LAVENDER, HLTGH (called Huey) gives lots of information 
on himself, in his Revolutionary War Pension Application. He 
says he was born Nov. 11, 1754, in County Antrim, Ireland, near 
Ballymena; landed 1771 in South Carolina and settled on Wateree

Creek in Camden District (now Fairfield) ; volunteered early in 
the Revolution, and served at various times until the close of the 
war, about two years in all, as a private in S. C. Troops under 
Captains Robert Allison, John Mullen, Casey and John Wolgen 
and Colonel John Winn and Generals Sumter, Pickens and Nathan- 
iel Greens; was in the siege of Ninety-Six. Hugh Lavender’s rec- 
ord says he lived also in Newberry District S. C., and in 1822 
came to Greene County (now Hale). He refers to John Elliott, 
David Campbell and James Campbell for veracity and character. 
Hugh Lavender died, 1834, and is buried at Concord with no 
marker to his grave. 

Hugh Lavender’s will at Eutaw (Book b, Page 153) gives, a 
list of his children namely: Margaret Lavender, Sarah Bennett, 
Robert S. Lavender, John Lavender, Ruth Barbour, Mary Torbert, 
Nancy McDaniel, Levi Lavender. Hugh also leaves money to 
James Campbell and Lucy Lavender, but does not state who they 
are. He makes no mention of his wife who must have died first, 
but I have just recently received copy of Bible records in posses- 
sion of John Levi Lavender, of Birmingham, and Hugh’s wife is 
given as Rebecca Smith, born 1759 in Ireland, married 1777. 

John Levi Lavender (age 82) is a brother of Catherine Ann 
(Kate) Lavender, who married (1897) her fourth cousin, John 
William Lavender. Mrs. Kate Lavender helped me a great deal 
until her death, April 12, 1943, in Birmingham. Her sister-in-law 
by marriage, Mrs. Annie Bobinette Dominick Lavender (widow 
of Francis Marion Lavender) of Greensboro, has also greatly 
helped with this history. Mrs. Kate Lavender remembered that 
her grandfather had a sister who married a Bennett, and told me 
of her grandson, Dr. James D. Bennett, of Meridian, but I’ve never 
been able to hear from him. Dr. Bennett is a son of Hugh Laven- 
der Bennett and grandson of Kinard Bennett, who married Sarah 
Lavender, Sarah had another son, David, but this is the limit of our 
record on them. 

Robert S. Lavender (Bobin), son of Hugh, in 1825 joined Con- 
cord Church, and in 1828, one of his children was baptized at 
Concord. These records are from the old Church minutes. Census 
records at Tuscaloosa give some information and Sumter County 
records give some. Bobin had sons, H. E. and David S. Lavender,

and Daughters, Nancy G. (Mrs. John C. Porter) and one whose 
name is not given. 

Concord Church records show that William McDaniel had 
four Children Baptized Oct. 30, 1831 ; namely, Elizabeth, Hugh 
Lavender, Anne Montgomery and Moses Martin McDaniel. This 
is undoubtedly husband of Nancy Lavender and their children, 
but I have no further record of them. 

Hugh Levi Lavender, son of Hugh, married Dec. 12, 1824, 
Jane Hopper (Jennie) and had several children, among them John 
David Lavender (born Feb. 29, 1836, Greensboro — died June 16. 
1899, Birmingham, buried East Lake). John David married 1860 
m Sumterville, Ala. Rebecca Barlow Poythress, who had come in 
1853 in a covered wagon from Petersburg, Va., with her parents 
(James Edward Poythress and Catherine Smith Preston). Re- 
becca was born Nov. 10, 1838, in Petersburg, and died Jan. 28, 
1936, in Birmingham at the age of 97. Her children were: John 
Levi Lavender (now living in Birmingham) Catherine Ann (Mrs. 
J. W. Lavender) who died 1943; Ida Thomas (Mrs. Janies S. 
Sullivan), Birmingham; Dr. William Algernon Lavender (died 
1940 in Birmingham), Lemuel Thomas Lavender (who married 
first Jane Elizabeth Lavender), LaGrange, Ga. ; Herbert Windham 
Lavender (married Mary Ruth Scarborough), Livingston, Alaba- 
ma. 


John Lavender (born July 1, 1780, Camden District, S. C., 
died March 3, 1861, at Havana, buried Concord), married Rebecca 
Sant (born March 15, 1784, in South Carolina, died May 15, 1860, 
At Havana, buried Concord). Rebecca was full Irish, says Miss 
Annie Stokes, but others say she was, named Sent and was from 
London. Snedecor Directory (1855) gives John Lavender, Planter, 
Havana, 1821, Section 14 and 15, Township 22, Range 5, East. 
This was between Havana and Liberty. • Mrs. Annie Lavender 
says Cousin Mag told her that several brothers came from South 
Carolina and settled first near Moundville, but because of chills 
and fevers, moved out near Liberty and Havana. Some of the 
brothers moved into Pickens County, near Ethelsville. There are 
many Lavenders in that county today. 

John Lavender’s children were: Elizabeth (married Tyree 
Hollis) ; Ann Montgomery Lavender (1808-1831) ; Sarah (Sallie)

South Carolina; Married Dec. 15, 1829, at Havana, Tyree Hollis, 
who was born 1794 in South Carolina). Snedecor (1855) gives 
Tyree Hollis, Planter, Havana, 1822, Section 21, Township 22, 
Range 5, East. This is out toward Liberty. Tyree died 1870. He 
and wife are buried at Concord (no stones). Miss Hattie Hollis, 
of Sawyerville, and Miss Annie Stokes, of Havana, furnished most 
of the Hollis records. 

Tyree Hollis had these children (maybe others) ; Calvin De- 
witt Hollis (married Anne Elizabeth Elliott) ; Rebecca Margaret 
(born about 1853; died July 8, 1909, single); Henry (born about 
1835, probably died young) ; Thomas (born about 1838; died about

James Harvey Hollis (married Martha Ann Hendrix) ; Elizabeth

Calvin Dewitt Hollis (1830-1884), married Anne Elizabeth 
Elliott and most of their descendants were given in the Hale 
County News, March 30, 1944, but here are a few additions. James 
Pinkney Hollis, son of Calvin, first married (1893), Marie Elba 
Abernathy, daughter of Burrell Brown (Joe) Abernathy and Sarah 
Elizabeth Lavender, and had James Calvin Hollis (Married 1931,

na), and Thomas Brown Hollis (died Nov. 13, 1918, from injuries 
received in Battle of Chateau Thiery, France, in First AYorld War).

Parr, daughter of King Drew Parr and Mary Satira May, whose 
ancestor (John Parr) was a soldier of the Revolution, who settled 
west of Greensboro about 1835 from Fairfield District, S. C. where

from his new field of labor. Under date of Nov. 19th, 1829, I find 
the following minute: “It is our painful duty to record the death 
of our father and fellow laborer, the Rev. George G. McWhorter. 
He was a patriot and soldier in the Revolutionary War. Having- 
been permitted to labor in the vineyard, he has ceased from his 
labors, and entered, as we trust, into the enjoyment of the right- 
eous. This dispensation we desire to improve to our edification 
and usefulness.” — Nall’s Dead of the Synod of Alabama, 1851, page 10.

“Mr. Mordecai, was, as his name indicates, a Jew by birth 
and was nearly related to the Cohens, Levys and Mordecais of 
Norfolk and Charleston. Many years ago, however, he adjured 
the religion of his fathers, and attached himself to the Methodist 
Church. He has often told us, that he was converted by hearing 
preaching across a river, while out cow hunting. We knew the 
old man nearly fifteen years and can testify to his hospitality and 
harmlessness of character. He was born in October 1755, as 
nearly as our recollection of the entry in his Bible serves us.” —

MOULTON, MICHAEL — Departed this life on Sunday the

turning health, when he was suddenly called from the stage of 
mortal existence. Col. Moulton was born in the county of Duplin, 
N. C. — he represented a county in that State in the Legislature 
several years. He afterwards removed and became a citizen of 
Tennessee. At the commencement of the great war with Great 
Britain, he flew with alacrity to the standard of his country; and 
continued his unremitting exertions in defence of our right, until 
the final and glorious conclusion of the struggle. He accompanied 
Gen. Jackson in the 1st descent of the Mississippi, as captain of 
a troop of cavalry from Tennessee; and also his expedition against 
the Southern Indians. Afterwards, having been promoted to the 
command of a regiment of militia, he descended the river a second 
time under command of Gen. Carrol,, and contributed by his ser- 
vices to “foil the last demonstration” of our enemy at New Or-

NOLEN, STEPHEN NOLAND, Junior, of Scotch-Irish an- 
centry, was born 1753 in Frederick County, Virginia, the son of 

Stephen Nowland/Noland, Senior, and Susannah Nothing 

further of his ancestry is definitely known. He is probably one 
of the contemporary branches of Nowland/Nolands who settled 
very early in Maryland, in Cecil County and along the Eastern 
Shore, and thence into Charles County, Maryland, and thence 
crossed over the Potomac River into Stafford County, Virginia, 
and thence up the Northern Neck into Loudoun and Frederick 
County, Virginia. Whether or not he is a son of Stephen Nowland 
whose widow Mary married in 1738 in Charles County, Maryland, 
John Dempsey, whose son Daniel Noland married Henrietta 
Smallwood, is not known — certainly he is of the right age so to be. 

Stephen Nowland-Noland, Senior, in 1772 received a Royal 
Land Grant of 100 acres of land “Situate on Mill Creek a Branch 
of Broad River on the North East side thereof in Craven County,” 
South Carolina, (now Fairfield County). He is definitely known 
to have had five sons — tradition says seven — who served in the

Mary Nolen, date of birth and death unknown. 

Stephen Nolen, Junior, Revolutionary soldier, lived in the 
forks of Little River about six miles northwest of Winnsboro in 
Fairfield District, South Carolina. He was a successful planter 
and accumulated considerable land and slaves. During the period 
1820 to 1824 all of his six sons moved to Newton, Monroe and 
Henry Counties, Georgia, no doubt attracted by the land lotteries 
and the opportunity of obtaining free and productive land in a 
new and fast developing section. 

In the spring of 1824, Stephen Noland/Nolen, Junior, then in 
his 71st year, disposed of his plantations in Fairfield District, South 
Carolina, and following the trek of his sons, moved to formerly 
Monroe Count}', now Butts County, Georgia, where in December 
1824 he purchased a lot of land consisting of 20 2^2 acres, on which 
he built a two story log house. Here, 20 January 1829 his wife 
passed away and was buried probably in the family cemetery 
nearby his home. 

Shortly after the death of his wife, in March 1829, Stephen 
Nolen. Junior, (R.S.) deeded to his daughter Mary the home place, 
also, by deed of gift gave to her certain slaves and household fur- 
niture, retaining a life’s interest therein. 

Here he continued to reside until 1842 when, then in his 89th 
year, he moved to Chambers County, Alabama, to live with his 
son Isaac Nolen. In the meantime three other sons had moved, 
to Chambers County, viz: Stephen, James and George. 

In March 1846, then in his 93rd year, Stephen Nolen, Junior, 
by a simple Bill of Sale conveyed to his son Isaac all of his per- 
sonal property consisting of slaves and money, thereby, obviating 
the necessity of a will. There he died, his tombstone inscription 
in the Sweet Home Methodist Church Cemetery reads as follows : 


Sacred to the Memory of 
STEPHEN NOLEN 
: who departed this life

OUTLAW, ALEXANDER — Departed this life, at Celatchie 
Heights, in Dallas County, on the 25th August last, in the S7th 
year of his age. Col. Alexander Outlaw, formerly of Jefferson 
County, Tennessee, but for the last 9 years a venerable and re- 
spected inhabitant of this State. Notwithstanding the shortness 
of human life, we are engaged in so many different pursuits, and 
our minds are led away by so many attractions, that we seldom 
attempt to form an estimate of the worth and merits of our fel- 
low creatures, until they have gone into the eternal and unchangeable 
state; until the picture of their lives is reflected back by the 
dark shades of death. It is then, and not until then, that the 
lingering hand of friendship, or the partial finger of affection are 
exerted to trace the paths pursued by those, who have been dear 
to us in this transitory life. It is then, that memory hovers, with 
fond and melancholy remembrance over each incident, as they are 
presented thro' the lapse of years that are past, and endeavors 
to present the outlines of the picture, on which it delighted to 
gaze, while it was animated, by the transient spark of life. Con- 
sidering the shortness of the duration of man’s existence, and the 
countless number of intelligent beings with which it has pleased 
the Almighty Ruler of the Universe to people the earth, it has 
fallen to the lot of but very few indeed, to act so conspicuous a 
part in the drama of human life, as Col. Outlaw. Firmly, and in- 
violably attached to the principles of free government, he warmly 
engaged and acted a conspicuous part in that eventful and glorious 
struggle, which terminated in his country’s independence. The 
strong energies of his mind, the respectability of his character, 
and a well placed confidence in his judgement, enabled him to 
carry with him into the field of danger and glory, a choice collec- 
tion of the companions of his youth, who were willing to unite, 
and identify their fortunes with his. In the command of that 
respectable corps, of which he never ceased to speak in terms of 
unceasing respect and soldierly affection, he acted a conspicious 
part in the battles of Monks Corner, Briar Creek, Eutaw Springs, 
and the memorable sieges of Savannah and Charleston. At the 
close of the Revolution he settled in Tennessee where he con- 
tinued through the lapse of many years, to enjoy various proofs of 
the confidence of his fellow-citizens. He was sent first, as a dele- 
gate* to the Legislature of North Carolina, afterwards elected as 
a member of the Convention that framed the Constitution of 
•Tennessee. -and- -immediately on the, establishment of a State Gov- 
ernment, he was elected a member of the Senate, a situation

altho’ he had passed through all of the vicissitudes of prosperitv 
and of affliction, incident to a life of nearly four score and ten 
years, he died with an humble but firm hope through the inter- 
cession of a Saviour, of a seat in that kingdom, which is not of 
this world. The closing scenes of such men, are like the last gentle 
beams of a setting sun, shedding the genial influence of their

in the day of their noontide effulgence. — Selma Courier , Dec. 6, 1827.

the British, thinking they were still there but the British had left. 
The regiment remained there until the expiration of their time.

Grantham as a substitute, who served out his tour, without being 
in any engagement, principally against tories. While Charleston 
was being held by the British, he was again drafted for nine 
months in troops to march to Charleston. He hired William

months. At last Christmas he became a communicant of that. 
Church, and at the following Easter was unanimously elected 
Senior Warden. It gives the writer great pleasure to state that, 
during his sickness, the deceased gave satisfactory evidence that 
with him to live was Christ and to die was gain; indeed, from 
the time he united himself to the people of the Lord, it appeared 
to be his great aim and endeavor to recommend the Church, which 
had secured his enlightened and hearty attachment. An infant 
congregation, in whose welfare he ceased not to the last to take 
a lively interest, while fully persuaded that he made a happy ex- 
change, can not but deplore the loss of his Christian counsel and 
practice. May many others of like faith in Jesus Christ succeed 
to his place in the Church Militant. The writer of this imperfect 
notice forbears to remark on the public spiritness, upright princi- 
ples and suavity of' manners so remarkably prevalent in him and 
which thro’ the long period of thirty years, won for him the esteem 
of this community; because, when it is stated — which it is with 
confidence — that he was a Christian gentleman, there is presented 
a surer ground of general respect and a more abundant source of 
consolation to his many surviving friends than any thing else could 
have offered. — Communicated . — Huntsville Democrat , June 19, 1844.

Departed this life, 23rd inst., in the 85th year of his age, Capt. 
Peyton Powell, of Madison County, Ala. The deceased was a 
native of Powhatan County, Va. He removed to this county, 
where he has resided for about 30 years, esteemed and beloved by 
all who knew him. He was a lieutenant in the army of the Revolu- 
tion. With that noble and patriotic band he fought and suffered 
for Heaven’s best boon to man — Liberty — and through the provi- 
dence of his beneficient Creator, he has been permitted long to 
enjoy the sweet fruits of his toil, and to witness the wide spreading- 
glories of his beloved country, its proud banner floating almost 
over every Sea, and its honor proclaimed by almost every nation. 

The departed was among the last honored band whose spirits 
still linger among us to tell of the noble deeds of the past. But 
his happy spirit has fled to join the Father of his country — together 
with many of his companions — in the abodes of the blessed on 
high, where the wicked cease from trembling and the weary are 
at rest. Capt. Powell was an acceptable member of the Methodist 
E. Church for 55 years. In life, in death, he distinguished himself 
as the patriot, the philanthropist and the Christian, leaving us an 
example worthy our imitation. — Huntsville Democrat, June 5, 1844.

the 11th Va. Regiment. Four or five months later, he was com- 
missioned Ensign and in the Winter of 1779 and 1780 was com-

PRIDE.. EDWARD — A recent historical ceremony of note 
was the placing- of a marker at the grave of Maj. Edward Pride, 
a soldier of the Revolutionary War, who sleeps in Colbert County, 
a few miles from Tuscumbia, Ala. The exercises were sponsored 
by Colbert Chapter, D.A.R., of Tuscumbia, of which Mrs. Lula 
Merrill Simpson is the regent. After the assembly call by Sol 
Green, bugler. Rev. D. C. McNutt gave the invocation, which was 
followed by introductory remarks from the regent. Those as- 
sembled to do honor to the Revolutionary veteran joined in the 
American’s Creed, after which “America” was played by Smith’s 
Concert Band. The marker was unveiled by two little children, 
both members of the seventh generation of Maj. Pride’s descen- 
dants, Shirley Bragg, of Decatur, and Goodloe Rutland, of Tus- 
cumbia. The address of the occasion was made by Rev. R. I. 
Walston, of Birmingham. After “The Star-Spangled Banner” was 
played by the band, Commander James Dirago, of Colbert County 
Post No. 31, American Legion, led in a salute to the flag. An 
interesting sketch of the life and war record of Maj. Pride was 
given by one of his lineal descendants, James W. Rutland, some 
of the outstanding facts being as follows : 

Edward Pride was born near Raleigh, N. C., in 1755. Early 
in life he became a Methodist preacher and rode a circuit through 
Virginia and North Carolina. When Paul Revere made his famous 
ride, Edward Pride notified him that he would not only be a bearer 
of arms, but would be bearer of the message of Paul the Apostle. 

Edward Pride volunteered in Gen. Davidson’s Brigade and 
ministered to the spiritual needs of this brigade throughout the 
war. In 1797 he left his North Carolina home, crossed the Blue 
Ridge Mountains, and finally settled near Decatur, Ala. Later 
he followed his sons to Franklin County, now Colbert, and estab- 
lished a home where lie spent the remainder of his days. The bene- 
diction by Rev. M. McNutt and the blowing of taps fittingly closed 
the patriotic ceremonies . — Birmingham News, February 28, 1932. 

PRIDE, BURTON — -Born in 1758, in Pennsylvania. He 
stated that he lived in Caswell County, N. C., at the time of his 
enlistment, 1775, and served under General McIntosh, Colonel 
Habersham, and Captain Hendley, for twelve months. In 1776 
he volunteered in the militia under General Rutherford and Colonel 
Locke. All of his officers were from Georgia. At the age of five

he removed from Pennsylvania to Orange County, N. C., then 
to Caswell County, N. C., moved to East Tennessee, later to Ala- 
bama, living in Madison County and in Morgan County, June 7, 
1832, when he applied for a pension. His widow, Elizabeth Pride, 
aged sixty-seven, applied for a pension in Sevier County, Ark., 
January 27, 1855. She states that she was Elizabeth (Houston) 
Millwee, widow of John Milwee, when she married Burton Pride, 
in Madison County, Ala., October 5, 1820. He died May 26, 1835.

PLTGH, ELIJAH — In 1811 there came from Georgia a soldier 
of the Revolution, Elijah Pugh, whose ancestors came from that 
noted principality of Wales, and were fellow-countrymen of Christ- 
mas Evans. He had at least four brothers. Three of these, John, 
William, and Alexander Pugh went to Indiana and settled near 
Indianapolis, where his descendants are still supposed to be living. 
Elijah Pugh had four sons who came also from Georgia to Clarke 
County; Isaac, Rezin, Jesse, and Stephen. He had three daughters, 
Miriam, who married Isaac Jackson, Achsah, who married Amos 
Robinson and after his death Giles Chapman, and Alvira who 
married Joseph Hall. Elijah Pugh died in June 1824, being sixty- 
three years of age. Robert Pugh a fourth brother of Elijah Pugh, 
came also from Georgia in 1811 and settled in the same neighbor- 
hood. He had three sons, Elijah, Kinman, and Meredith, and four 
Daughters, Betsey, who became Mrs. Smith and removed to Texas, 
Nancy, who became Mrs. Macon, and Martha, who married P. 
Jones. The following dates from an old family Bible may properly 
be inserted here. Elijah Pugh was born in 1760. His wife, Ruth 
Julina was born in 1763. William Baskin was born in January 
1768. His wife, Isabell Corvin, was born in September 1768. 
Isaac Pugh, born in 1785, son of Elijah and Ruth, married Hannah 
Baskin, born in 1793. Jesse Pickens Pugh, born in 1829, married 
S. Melissa Bettis in 1858. Isaac Pugh, was married to Hannah 
Baskin in 1809, and with his young wife lie came in 1810, before 
his father, to the Indian wilds. He died in 1839. He had five 
sons, William B., E. Stewart, John M., Stephen, ?nd J. Pickensj. 
and one daughter, Rebecca. Miss Rebecca Pugly married John

are quite numerous. William B. Pugh has eight children. E. 
Stewart Pugh has four daughters and three sons. John M. Pugh 
has five children living. Stephen Pugh has six sons and one 
daughter. His wife was Miss Gilmore. J. Pickens Pugh has nine 
sons and daughters. Two of the daughters, Miss Mary and Miss 
Fredonia, are lovely girls, just entering womanhood. Rezin Pugh 
also married in Georgia. He had four sons, Isaac, Alvin, Jack R., 
and Elijah ; and three daughters. Stephen Pugh, the fourth son 
of Elijah Pugh, never married. He learned the trade of a gun- 
smith. He is yet living about four miles from Grove Hill, now, in 
1877, seventy-one years of age. He is still active, attends to his 
plantation, and is an intelligent, worthy citizen. Jessie Pugh 
married Miss Betsey Robinson. They removed to Louisiana about 
1838. He had five sons, William, Aaron, Isaac, John, and Stephen, 
and four daughters. 

The names of the descendants of the three sons of Robert 
Pugh are not at hand for this record ; but they with those al- 
ready named comprise many large families, who are residing in 
the same neighborhood where their ancestors settled, a few miles 
west of Grove Hill, and constitute, together with the Chapman 
families, a large and prosperous community. They are industrious, 
intelligent and enterprising, and are an excellent class of the citi- 
zens of this county. — Ball’s History of Clarke County, Ala., Pages 309- 
310. 


Last week a number of the members of the Elijah Pugh chapter, 
D.A.R., of Jackson, visited the tomb of Elijah Pugh, Revolutionary 
soldier, about four miles west of Grove Hill, where they planted 
an ornamental tree as a living memorial to the patriot from whom 
the chapter takes its name. The grave is located in the family 
burial ground just in front of the former home of Elijah Pugh, 
which is still occupied by lineal descendants of the Revolutionary 
hero, in the persons of Isaac Pugh and his sister, Miss Cora Pugh. 
Near this home passed the war trail of the friendly Choctaws 
under Pushmatahah when they joined Gen. Jackson in his war 
upon the Creeks, and in this home the great Chief visited his 
friend, the first Elijah Pugh. The family burial ground, which is 
neatly kept, contains not only the grave Elijah Pugh, but that 
of his wife, Ruth St. Julina, one of the French Huguenots exiled 
from France and settling in South Carolina and Georgia; and that 
of — DUBOUT, another Revolutionary soldier, whose first name

has been lost with the passing of the years, though some of the 
older families of the county are known to bear relation to him. 
Besides these graves of pioneers there are others of those who 
came after them, and were related to them in various degrees of 
consanguinity. It is the purpose of the Pugh family to deed this 
cemetery to the National Society, D.A.R., who in turn will see 
that this shrine of patriotism receives perpetual care. 

Members of the Grove Hill Chapter (Elizabeth Bradford) also 
took part in the tree planting ceremonies, their contribution being 
an Arbor Vitae. They were Mrs. Mary Waite Tucker, Miss Mabel 
Waite, Mrs. J. N. Cooper, Mrs. Jesse Pugh and Mrs. Jackson. The 
members of local chapter visiting the tomb on this occasion were 
Mrs. W. W. Andrews, regent, Mrs. W. A. Calhoun, recording 
secretary; Mrs. J. M. Weston, corresponding secretary and Mrs. 
J. Loranz, chaplain. Nine members of the Jackson Chapter and 
many members of the Grove Hill Chapter are direct descendants

his own expense, in 1816, the lot being at Claiborne, erected 
a house of worship for the Methodist Episcopal Church. 'The 
first Society of Clairborne, organized just prior to the erection 
of the house of worship there, consisted of the Rev. Joel 
Rivers, Rhoda Rivers, his wife, and a number of their children. 
If there were any others it is not now known. In the after 
time, and at an early day. . . . and Stephen Steele were mem- 
bers of that Society. Stephen Steele, in 1821, married Eliza- 
beth Rivers, the daughter of the Rev. Joel Rivers, and was a 
Methodist at the town of Claiborne from 1825 till his death 
in 1868,” etc.

ceived in the Revolutionary War during battle, & from a full

of South Carolina, aged 91 years, 1 month, and leaving a 

disconsolate wife with whom he had happily lived for sixty-six 

years, and with a large circle of relatives and friends. The subject 
of this notice passed through the scenes of the Revolution with 
honor to his country and credit to himself. He was for many 
years a military pensioner for his services in that contest which 
tried mens souls. In all the relations of husband, father, citizen 
and Christian, his conduct was irreproachable. He was for more 
than half a century a faithful member of the Presbyterian church. 
He possessed in an eminent degree the use of all his faculties, both 
physical and mental, up to his last illness, if illness it could be 
called, which was of short duration, for it appeared to be euthanasia. 
For him death had no terrors. It was the kind messenger to waft 
him from this sublumary to that effulgent world, where his God 
reigns in bliss. “Blessed are they who die in the Lord”. Thus 
has passed from among us one of the last of those spirits, who so 
nobly sutained their country in it greatest need. May my end be 
like this. C. S. J . — Huntsville Democrat, August 29, 1850.

Selma, Dallas County, Ala. Inscription on his tomb is as follows : 
Sacred to the memory of WILLIAM RUSSELL, who died' in 
April, 1824, in the 83rd year of his age. He was long a member 
of the Presbyterian Church, and an active, and efficient ruling 
elder. He died with resignation and in the hope of eternal blessed- 
ness beyond the grave. A soldier of the Revolution. Cherokee 
Chapter. D.A.R. 

“Although his neighbors in N. C. were all Tories, he became 
a devoted soldier of the Revolution. His former friends tried to 
capture him whenever he visited his family. Once suspecting that 
he. was hid in an out house, they set it on fire, and when it was 
apparently all ablaze, they rode away cursing him for a dead and 
gone rebel. He was hid in a hogshead, and rolled out in it just 
in time to save his life. Another time they did capture him, and 
were about to shoot him. Forty rifles were pointed at him, when 
he bared his breast, and said : Shoot to kill boys, for I don’t want 
to linger over this disagreeable business. They declared they 
could not kill such a brave man, and bade him go in peace. It 
has been said that William Russell said that he felt that he knew 
what the fires of Hell were like, during his suffering in the burning 
building. He carried the scars of these burns al! his life. He 
married Jennette Roberson, and their children were as follows: 
Mathew Russell, born 1772, married Mary Russell (cousin) ; David 
Russell, born Jan. 7th. 1778, married Jennie Morrison; Eleanor 
Russell, born Dec. 18th. 1780, married James Russell (cousin)” — *

TARRANT, JAMES— In 1819, before Jefferson County was

the Rev. James Tarrant, who was born in the Colony of Virginia, 
and who was a Captain in the service of the United Colonies in the 
war for independence, and who lived awhile in South Carolina, 
and who possesses deep piety and fixed religious principles, settled 
on a creek in Alabama, about eight miles west of the present city

of Birmingham and about four miles from the old town of Jones- 
boro. He brought with him to his new home in Alabama a young 
negro whose name was Adam, and who was noted for his religious 
excellence. In 1820 the Rev. James Tarrant caused to be erected 
near his residence a house of divine worship. That house of wor- 
ship was made of logs, and the logs out of which it was made 
were cut and hauled by Adam, the negro, the slave. That house 
of worship was named Bethlehem. The Rev. James Tarrant died 
in his thirties, at his home, and was buried on his own premises, 
a few hundred yards from Bethlehem church. — West, History of Meth- 
odism in Alabama, p. 292. See also Revolutionary Soldiers in Alaba- 
ma, 1911, p. 115. 

TATUM, HOWELL — Listed in the North Carolina Roster 
of the Revolution as having served in that war. He is believed 
to have been the Howell Tatum who removed from Georgia to 
Autauga County, Ala., in the early days of that county. The wall 
of his father, Peter Tatum, who was also a soldier of the Revolu- 
tion, was probated in Wilkes County, Ga., in 1791, in which he 
names his wife Rebeccah, his son Howell, son Epps, son Peter, 
daughters Rebecca, Nancy, Polly and Sally Tatum, and son 
Thomas, the five last named being his youngest children and 
minors. As executors, he named his wife and his son Howell. 
As this will was executed in 1791, and as his son Howell was 
named as an executor, a post which a minor could not fill, Howell 
Tatum was born before 1770, and therefore old enough to have 
served in the latter part of the Revolution, at least. — Davidson’s 
Early Records of Wilkes County , Ga., vol. 1, p. 49.

Greene County, Ga., where his son, Peter E. Tatum, was born in 1796.

TAYLOR, GEORGE — Died in this county, about three weeks 
ago, after a lingering illness, Major George Taylor, in the 84th 
years of his age. Major Taylor was born in South Carolina, where 
he grew to manhood and lived during the stormy period of the 
Revolution. In that trying struggle, he took an early and active 
part, on the side of the liberty and independence of his country. 
He remained in his native State some years after the close of the 
war — then removed to Tennessee, where he resided till he removed 
to Alabama. Major Taylor lived in this country the last twenty- 
five or twenty-six years of his life, universally respected by those 
who knew him. He always maintained the character of an honest, 
upright citizen, a sound patriot, and an independent democratic 
republican. He left an aged and venerable widow, and many de- 
scendants to lament his death, and numerous friends to deplore the 
loss of his counsel and friendship. We should have noticed the 
death of our venable friend at an earlier day, but for the hope, 
that some one, more intimately acquainted with his history, would 
have furnished a more extensive biographical sketch. And we 
yet hope that this will be done, for the gratification of Maj. T’s 
numerous friends, here and elsewhere . — Huntsville Democrat , May

Thomason served in the Revolutionary War as a corporal in the 
Company North Carolina Artillery commanded by Capt. John 
Kingsbury. He enlisted March 20, 1777 for the War and his 
name last appears on the roll of that organization dated Sept. 10, 
1778 . — The Adjutant General , Washington, D. C. 

THOMPSON, ELECTIUS — We are assembled, on this in- 
teresting occasion, around the grave of Electius Thompson, a revo- 
lutionary father, to pay to his memory the last tribute of respect. 

But we hasten to give you a brief sketch of Electius Thomp- 
son. He was born in 1750, near the place where the city of Wash- 
ington now stands, and died at the advanced age of ninety years. 
Losing his father when an infant, he was committed to the charge 
of an uncle, who placed him on, a vessel at sea at the early age of 
nine years, to learn the arduous duties of a sailor. It is not in- 
tended in this address, nor is it in the power of the speaker, to 
i.ecount to you the many thrilling incidents attending him, while 
leading the eventful life of a wanderer on the ocean. He will only 
remark, that he was a bold and faithful sailor, whose patience 
never forsook him in the calm, and whose courage never failed 
him in the storm. By his candor, firmness and integrity, he al- 
ways secured the confidence of those with whom he associated, 
both on land and sea. 

In 1775, when the tocsin of alarm was sounded from the hill 
tops, and the flames of the revolution began to rage on our bor- 
ders, he relinquished his home on the briny waves, to serve his 
country in the humble capacity of a private in a volunteer company, 
bearing on his helmet, in legible letters, the motto, “Liberty or 
death” and he continued to battle in the cause of freedom through 
most of the long and bloody war. 

The officer in command has many incentives, besides those 
of patriotism, to impel him on to the deadly strife. The thrilling 
anticipation of wreathing around his brow the chaplet of unfading 
glory — the hope that his name and his deeds may be handed down, 
on marble records, and on the annals of history, for the praise and 


WINTER ISSUE, 1944 


659 


admiration of posterity, urge him on to face the storm, and to 
expose his bosom to the firey gleam of the sabre and the bayonet. — 
But no other motive than the love of liberty and the pride of 
country animated Electius Thompson on the ensanguined field, 
and sustained him under the privations and hardships of the camp, 
the toil and fatigue of the march. Ambition’s mad’ning influence 
held no sway over his simple and honest heart. ‘Liberty or death’ 
was written on his frontlet and graven on his heart no panting 
desire for fame urged him onward in the perilous and dreadful 
conflict ; His country and his rights alone stood before him, and 
he felt the warrior’s arm nerved by the patriot’s heart. He was 
an honest and a virtuous man — a brave and faithful soldier, his 
youthful days were devoted to the service of his country, and his 
declining years to the service of his God. His infant mind was 
imbued with the Roman Catholic faith ; and although he continued 
a dupe to priestcraft until middle age, often contributing his hum- 
ble mite to the sordid cupidity of the priest, to absolve him from 
his sins, he finally cast off the veil of ignorance and superstitution 
which had been thrown around him in early life, and refused to 
acknowledge the power of absolution in any other being but Him, 
“who formed the heavens and the earth, who holds the sun in his 
hand, and upholds the immense fabric of the universe by the word 
of his power”. The true light of Christianity beamed upon his 
benighted soul, and dispelled the dark cloud of superstitution which 
had so long overshadowed him — and at the age of forty, having 
renounced the Roman Catholic religion, he connected himself with 
the church of that ancient and respectable denomination of Chris- 
tians, the Baptists. Nor was he a silent and an inefficient member; 
for although compelled to obtain his living by the sweat of his 
brow, he spent a portion of his time in promulgating the imperish- 
able truths of Christianity — in extending the benign influence of 
the gospel ; and his energy as a minister of the gospel continued 
unabated, even in the sunset of life. He lived to see the country 
for whose liberties he had fought, free, prosperous and happy. 
Thus he filled up the measure of his existence, and closed his eyes 
forever on America’s cloudless sky. And although we shall see 
him no more on this earth — although his body lies crumbling into 
dust, yet, from the tenor of his life, we have the most confident 
assurance that, new-fledged, he has towered away to dip his pin- 
ions in the fount of light . — -Huntsville Democrat , July 17, 1841.

The Revolutionary struggle being over, he emigrated to Pe- 
tersburg, Georgia where he engaged in the active and busy scenes 
ot life, with that success that enabled him to provide for his family 
all those comforts and enjoyments which the world affords. From 
thence at an early date he moved to this country. No man more 
scrupulously and rigidly honest ; none more punctual in all his 
engagements ; and it is believed that he was never known to vio- 
late a promise. His attachments were strong, his friendship, once 
avowed knew no bounds, and his devotion to the happiness and 
prosperity of his numerous posterity was of that ardent, intense 
and abiding character which death alone could abate. Charity 
was with him a primary virtue ; and he directed it in the spirit of 
benevolence which not his left hand knew what his right hand 
gave. He died with perfect resignation and composure as being 
conscious that a long life of unsullied integrity constituted a pass- 
port to scenes of future rest . — Huntsville Democrat, July 3, 1829. 

TISHO MINGO, CAPTAIN, a veteran warrior of the Choc- 
taw, departed this life on the 5th inst. Although but little known 
beyond the limits of his nation, yet he was a man that has seen 
wars and fought battles — stood high among his own people as a 
brave and good man. He served under General Wayne in the 
Revolutionary War, for which he received a pension from the 
Government of the United States ; and in the late war with Eng- 
land, he served under General Jackson, and did many deeds of 
valor. He had fought in nine battles of the United States. As a 
friend he has served the white man faithfully. His last words 
were : “When I am gone, beat the drum and fire the guns.” 

I hear the sound of the drum — the report of “death guns” is 
roaring* in our valley — a warriors spirit is passing away. The 
brave Tisho Mingo, the veteran warrior of our tribe, is gone! His 
clansmen are gathering around the corpse. • Long years have 
passed since first his native hills re-echoed his war-hoop — when 
grey-headed warriors gathered around his war dance, and said, 
“Go, young warrior, go — It is beloved Washington who calls for 
help.” Our aged warrior and chieftains are all gone. Tisho 
Mingo, the last of the brave, is gone! They are all gone ! — Tuscaloosa

WARE, ROBERT — Died on the 6th inst. at his residence 
near this place, aged 67. The eulogy of the departed good, is but 
a just tribute to their merit. In some degree, it soothes the feel- 
ings of friends, and excites to emulation and virtue. Those who 
knew Mr. Ware, will always venerate his memory. Animated by 
ardent patriotism he early embarked in defence of the liberties 
of his country. He endured every hardship, and encountered every 
peril, with fortitude and heroism. In numerous excursions against 
the tories, at the battle of the Cowpens and at the siege of Augusta, 
he performed services which ought to embalm his name in the 
hearts of his countrymen. During most of his life, he was an in- 
habitant of the county of Lincoln in the State of Georgia ; and 
for many years, as a member of the Legislature and a judge of 
the county court was distinguished for his sound judgment and 
inflexible integrity. As a member of the Baptist church, for 
nearly forty years he exhibited an example to the Christian, in 
piety to God and good will to man. In his general intercourse with 
society upright and honorable, in his domestic relations kind and 
affectionate, in his private habits temperate and industrious, few 
men more fully performed the various duties for which it has 
pleased the Deity to place in this world, in order to qualify us to 
enjoy that state of happiness which he has reserved only for the 
righteous. We trust he has gone to meet his redeemer, and re- 
ceive the welcome. “Well done, thou good and faithful servant, 
enter thou into the joy of thy Lord .” — Alabama Journal, Montgomery,

WHITE, ELIJAH— Mr. Editor.— Permit a small tribute to 
departed worth. The living desire much to profit by reminiscences 
of the dead, especially when the departed are distinguished by 
piety and usefulness. Bright seas and sunny skies attract not so 
much as tales of trouble, danger and hair-breadth escapes. 

Mr. White was a revolutionary soldier, served three tours in 
the patriotic army, and passed through the lights and shades of 
fortune incident to those days which tried the patriotism and pluck 
of the warrior. Among the last of that noble rank who are falling 
away like autumn leaves he reached the 98th year of his age — a 
connecting link between the present and the past. His conversa- 
tion often delighted his friends when he contrasted the darkness, 
danger, and toil of his former days with the peace, prosperity, and 
happiness of his latter days. Mr. White was born in Caroline 
County, Va., Feb. 15, 1761, married Miss Brame, December 1, 
1789, professed religion in 1787, and died in Franklin county, Ala., 
July 22, 1858. A few thoughts upon his religious history may not

Church in 1787- — -seventy-one years ago, when our church was al- 
most in its infancy in the United States. He was a subject of 
those wonderful revivals which swept over the State of Virginia, 
when mustering thousands flocked to hear the words of God ; when 
a' strange power felled hundreds to the ground, as men in battle, 
when the host of our Israel amounted to only 21,944, and the 
traveling ministers were only 133. How must the soul of this 
saint of God have rejoiced when standing upon the verge of life 
and contemplating the wonders of the hand of God, as well in the 
Church of his choice as in his beloved country, each rising as a 
column of beauty and strength, and sending its radiance over the 
nations, models of virtue, truth and excellence. 

This venerable relic of the past in early life consecrated his 
all of earthly goods to the glory of God, erected the family altar 
in his house, built a church upon his plantation, and opened his 
doors to the ministers of the gospel. There an Asbury, McKen- 
dree, George, Douglas, and others of that early day, found a home 
and a resting place in their toilsome rounds of ministerial labor. 
God smiled upon this hospitable mansion, filled the barns of this 
venerable patriarch with plenty, his larder with fatness, and his 
family with grace. Two of his sons became traveling preachers 
and members of the Virginia Conference. One passed to his re- 
ward before his father; the other is still upon the walls of Zion. 
In the year 1836, Mr. White removed to this county, when sud- 
denly he began to meet with sad reverses in his fortune. All his 
servants except one died, and left him in comparative poverty ; 
but this was small, for poverty and wealth are no certain exponents 
of piety or moral worth. But on other and more tender things he 
was called to suffer. His bright sun of prosperity became sudden- 
ly obscured by clouds, joys were converted into sorrows, and 
pleasures into pain. One affliction stepped suddenly upon the 
heels of another, until he could truly say “all thy waves have gone 
over me,” nor was his confidence shaken nor his integrity re- 
moved. In the pious confidence of the Psalmist, he could say to 
his soul, “Hope in God — I shall yet praise Him.” In 1837 a beloved 
daughter was taken from him by the great monster ; 1838, his son 
Joseph faded from his sight and laid away in the grave; 1839, his 
son Chilton was basely waylaid and assassinated near Columbus, 
Miss.; in 1844, his belowed wife, who for fifty-five years had been 
a staff in his hands, the joy of his soul and the delight of his eyes, 
his counsellor in trouble and solace in woe* was removed from him 


WINTER ISSUE, 1944

by death, and left him, all covered with sorrow, to bear the dan- 
gers of life alone, now almost like the branchless oak, withered 
by age, and scathed by this the greatest affliction of them all. 
But his cup was not yet filled: in 1852, his son, Samuel B., was 
thrown from his buggy and killed. This wave after wave rolled 
over his head — enough to try the faith of the bravest Christian. 
But our venerable veteran brother, though yielding to the pressure 
of the storm, like Job of old, ajl covered with trouble, rose, and 
shaking the ashes from his locks, could say, “I know that my 
Redeemer liveth.” In his lonesome condition, his only surviving 
daughter, Mrs. Rouza, left her native State, Virginia, to solace 
the lacerated mind of her father, and smoothe his passage to the 
cold grave. Thus attended, and thus trusting, this venerable saint 
waited patiently the call of his God, often saying, “To die is gain.” 

Having outlived all of his generation, and witnessed another 
pass away, he, the last of a noble race, heard the call of his master 
and felt no fear. In the highest ecstasy and bouvant hope he 
asked his daughter, “Is this death? It is the happiest hour of 
life.” Thus passed away our beloved brother, whose life, though 
checkered by varied scenes of prosperity and adversity, left no 
change in his fidelity to God and his church ; and, though stripped 
of almost everything else, his hope remained pure as at first, and 
having lost all of earth, he still retained “the pearl of great price” 
happily exchanging a world of trouble for a world of bliss. Hi? 
funeral sermon was preached at Russellville, by the writer, on the 
Sunday the 5th inst., to a numerous assembly, upon 2nd Timothy,

in the 78th year of his age. The deceased was a native of Vir- 
ginia and emigrated to Tenn. at an early period. He sus- 
tained the character of an honest and just man in all the 
transactions, of life. It is due to his memory to state, that 
during the gloomy hours of ’76, when despair had sunk in every 
heart, and was written on ever}' countenance, he fearlessly arrayed 
himself on the side of his country, and struck for the liberties which 
we now enjoy. — Tnscumbia Telegraph, Franklin Co., Ala., Nov. 14,

Departed this life at his residence, on the morning of the 24th 
inst. (May) Maj. Daniel Wright, in his 80th year, after a linger- 
ing indisposition of three months. The deceased was a native of 
Virginia. When in the spring of early youth he engaged in the 
arduous struggle for Colonial Independence, and during the entire 
revolutionary contest, from the rank of a soldier of liberty to that 
of captain of freemen, developed that decision of action, prompti- 
tude of execution, and energy of character, so peculiarly charac- 
teristic of his after life. Soon after the capture of Cornwallis at 
Yorktown, he became a citizen of South Carolina, in the Conven- 
tion of which State he was an active and efficient delegate in the 
formation of her first Constitution — was- a member of the Legis- 
lature for several years — and during his subsequent residence of 
twenty years, held the highly honorable and responsible office of 
Brigade Inspector of the South Carolina Militia. In 1812, when 
Madison was but the frontier of an infant Territory, he brought 
his numerous family to the then far western wilds of our beautiful 
county, and for the last 26 years has lived amongst us, truly an 
ornament of society — a kind and affectionate neighbor, husband 
and father, and an uncompromising friend of his country. The 
anniversary of American Independence will soon again roll around, 
but his neighbors, friends, children, grand and great grand chil- 
dren, will not (as was ever the custom) meet him again around 
his hospitable board. And his compatriots of ’76 — a few of whom 
annually spent that day with him in social festivity — may they 
long enjoy the periodical return of that day, to behold which again 
was his sole remaining earthly wish. Peace be with his immortal 
spirit —-Communicated . — Huntsville Democrat, June 9, 1838. 

WRIGHT, DANIEL— Born September 27, 1759, died May 
24, 1838, and buried near Bell Factory, Madison County. —

WYLIE, WILLIAM was in the battles when Corwallis and 
Tarleton overran the Carolinas. He was taken prisoner, suffered 
great hardships at Camden and when exchanged served to the

WYLIE, WILLIAM. “In the Selma Times-Journal of Sun- 
day, August 20, 1925, I see a query concerning the burial place of 
William Wylie and wife, Isabella. They had a daughter, Polly, 
who married Mr. David Hamilton, who is buried at Mount Pleas- 
ant Cemetery, near Summerfield, in what , is now Dallas County. 
This was in Perry County, at the time of which you write. 

“William Wylie and wife resided near Mount Pleasant church 
and I rest assured, that they were both buried there. I find no 
monument thus far, for either of them, but have seen Mrs. Hamil- 
ton’s tomb. She was their youngest daughter. Another daughter 
of theirs, Susan, who married Alex Walker is buried at Mount 
Pleasant, but I fail to find her grave mark. 

“Another daughter, Sallie, who married William Morrow, is 
also buried there. Jennie Wylie, another daughter, who married 
William Walker, never came to Alabama, but remained in South 
Carolina, Chester District. 

“His son, Peter Wylie, who was judge of probate once, re- 
mained in South Carolina, also. He had two sons, Kelso and John 
Wylie, who came to Alabama. They removed from here to North 
Alabama. W. W. Walker, better known as Dad Walker of Selma, 
is a great grandson of William and Isabella Wylie. He should be 
able to give you some information. His full name is William 
Wylie Walker. Also John Bradford of Selma is a great grandson 
of theirs. Signed: R. D. Reedy, Plantersville, Ala., Route 1.” — 
From an unidentified newspaper clipping.

By the records of Greene County, Alabama, (certified by Judge 
B. B. Barnes and Miss Mary Dunlap) Williamson Wynne died in
